The present day CS Road follows the original route up to the point where the new construction of Northside Driver in the 1950's took out the bridge.  FWIW, this W.K. King Fort Worth map is about an 1889-1890 date and does not show good detail on roads and other features outside the city limits of that time.  I hope to be able to detail this better in a blog in the future..

Using your link to current day streets, note that Cold Springs road curves north and runs along the west side of the railroad for a while.  Until the early 1950's when Northside Drive was built, Cold Springs crossed the river and continued on.  The segment across the river is still named CS road and intersects Watauga Road and runs up to about NE 28th.

Not in my opinion. CS road stays to the west of the railroad (Transcontinental here)

For what it's worth....     I have been picking at the Cold Springs question for the last 10 or 15 years. My thought is that the site of the Cold Springs WAS most likely on or near the south bank of the original (pre-1950) channel  to the east of the old Union Pacific (MKT) bridge. The original alignment of Cold Springs road and bridge were just to the west of the railroad at the river. This whole area is now totally obliterated and a new river bend and channel have been carved over it.  


I have been working on a Fort Worth Gazette blog with maps, pictures, history and my detailed conclusions for a while but I have become involved in another project that needs to get done first.

What is the "average" square footage, number of bedrooms, baths, etc. that defines the numbers above?
