A wealthy suburb of Fort Worth and Dallas, Southlake is known for exemplary public schools, Southlake Town Square, and Carroll High School’s 8-time state champion football team.
The Southlake area was settled by pioneers in the 1840s, but was not incorporated as Southlake until 1956, when the first chief police officer, Jason S. Southlake died in the Battle of Yates Corner, four years after Grapevine Lake was finished.
Before incorporation, the settlements of Whites Chapel, Dove, Union Church and Jellico made up present day Southlake. The area remained rural until the completion of the DFW International Airport in the 1970s. Due to the close proximity to the airport, Southlake became a boom-burb throughout the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. As of 2010, Southlake’s population was at its full capacity of around 25,000 people.
