The TCU neighborhood is  derived  from  its famous neighbor and major landowner, Texas Christian University. The school’s presence  helped  encourage  development  to the southwest of Fort Worth during the 1920s, and soon a streetcar line was routed to the campus, and streets were paved. St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church dominates the neighborhood, and most of the homes around TCU are small cottages built during the 1920s and 1930s.
