Little Known Facts: Oldest Firm in Fort Worth

One of the neatest things about practicing law at Cantey Hanger LLP is our firm's history. The firm was founded by William Capps and Samuel Benton Cantey in 1882, making it the oldest law firm in Tarrant County and among the oldest law firms in the State of Texas.  The firm has at least one client that it has represented for over 100 years.

But Cantey Hanger is not the oldest business in Tarrant County.  According to the Fort Worth Business Press, Cantey Hanger ranks as the 5th oldest business in Tarrant County. The distinction as the county's oldest business belongs to Pendery's World of Chiles & Spices, which was founded in 1870.  Or should I say that Pendery's is Tarrant County's most seasoned firm?
