General

Prior to settlement in 1850, this well-watered location on the blackland prairie was the site of important negotiations with the Indians including a treaty signed here by Sam Houston in 1849. The population was 1,813 in 1950; growth parallels that of most metroplex cities, and location of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport here has stimulated growth.
