Hillcrest is a historic district in Fort Worth, Texas. It is located a bit southwest of downtown.

At one time there were few roads like these, even as Hillcrest Fort Worth began to form. Hillcrest real estate evolved out of a suburban plan in the early 1900s. The plan brought neighborhood platting and a boulevard linking it to the downtown area. The neighborhood was called Chamberlin Arlington Heights. No houses were built though, and WWI brought construction of Camp Bowie to the area. It was built on land donated by Robert McCart. Utilities were put in place, including telephone lines by the military. When the war ended, the camp closed with utilities in place. New development followed in the 1920s and 30s, taking advantage of the build-ready area. Hillcrest was born.
