Saginaw (frequently known as Eagle Mountain–Saginaw) is a small city in Tarrant County, Texas, United States, and an Inner suburb of Fort Worth. The population was 21,899 in 2017. Saginaw is a Home rule municipality. The town was renamed Saginaw in 1882 by Jarvis J. Green (after his first choice of "Pontiac" was rejected by the United States Postal Service), who had lived and worked on Saginaw Street in Pontiac, Michigan. The name Saginaw comes from the Ojibwe language and means "to flow out." It is also the name of a river, a bay, and a city in Michigan.
