Leonard's Museum, Fort Worth

(4.9/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
In 1918, Marvin Leonard opened a small store that sold groceries and salvaged merchandise. He was soon joined by his brother Obie and the store grew to occupy over six blocks in downtown Fort Worth. Leonard Brothers became a store so large that even to this day it dwarfs anything that any single retail user has ever tried to accomplish. The Leonard Brothers invented the superstore and was a cross between a modern day super store and a shopping mall. It was a place to purchase merchandise and a place to meet up with friends. Going to Leonard’s on a Saturday was an event that the whole family looked forward to doing together whether they traveled to the store from across town or from across the state.
