    A Sunday school was started in 1908 in this development outside the city limits. The group became a Mission of the College Avenue Baptist Church, established in 1905 (about 3 Mi. N). By 1910 72 Mission participants were meeting in the Prairie Chapel School. In 1911 18 members formed the Southside Baptist Church and moved a building here in 1913. By 1915 the membership had grown to 231. The Church name changed to Travis Avenue Baptist in 1920 and a new sanctuary was completed in 1925. The church now serves a large area of Fort Worth, and sponsors several outreach ministries. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836-1986.
