FORT WORTH - The 32,393-sf Fort Worth Public Market Building at 1400 Henderson St. has been sold. Bob Simpson, co-owner of the Texas Rangers, sold the property to the billionaire Wilks family of Cisco.

The 84-year-old property was listed as a Texas historic landmark in 1980 and was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1984.

The Wilks family will likely restore the building for a business use, according to Wilks Bros. CEO Robert Early. The deed carries a restriction that the main building can’t be demolished and the outside cannot be materially changed before June 12, 2084.

Farris and Dan Wilks are the West Texas founders of Frac-Tech Services, a hydraulic fracturing and oilfield service company launched in 2002 in Cisco, their hometown. In 2011, they sold Frac-Tech to a Singapore company for $3.5 billion.
