Carter Riverside is a neighborhood in Fort Worth, Texas. It was established by the Carter family and has been an influential part of the city since its founding at the beginning of the 20th century. The first settlers were named for Robert E. Lee, who had recently died when they came to what became Fort Worth around 1840. His widow moved there with their daughter after his death in 1870 but left because she felt that it would be too wild for her tastes and returned to Virginia where she later wrote about her experiences on the frontier which turned into another book after being edited down from several thousand pages length!
Her son-in-law William Halsell joined them soon afterwards when he retired from politics in Arkansas during Reconstruction (1865–77) and eventually became a cattle baron. A second wave of settlers, the Carters, were named for Confederate general (1824–64) who was killed in battle during the Civil War. They arrived around 1890 but it wasn’t until 1900 that they ventured into Fort Worth after selling their family farm to purchase land on which to build Carter Riverside from what was known as the Santa Fe Railroad subdivision where more than 100 families had already begun settling.
