Whether you’re looking for a home in North Texas or a longtime resident, you may not think much about Euless. But Euless is more than a bedroom community for Dallas and Fort Worth companies. It’s a busy and historic town with new jobs on the way.
While you may not be thinking much about the Mid-Cities, developers are. Keep reading to learn more about Euless history and details of one source of jobs coming to a part of the city that needs a boost.
Euless Then And Now
Located at the intersection of Hwy. 10 and Hwy. 183 and just southwest of DFW Airport, Euless is a Tarrant County city with a population of more than 54,000 people. It traces its roots to March 1879, when Elisha Adam and Judy Trigg Euless bought some land south of Bear Creek for a home and cotton gin. A road was established from Bedford to the Dallas County line, and Elisha Euless arranged for it to pass by Grange Hall, located on his property and serving as a community school. Soon, the town that grew up around this area was named after the man who arranged for the area’s school, gin and road.
The Euless family name became better known across Tarrant County in 1892 when descendant Adam Euless was elected county sheriff. Today, city leaders preserve the past at the 4-acre Heritage Park, where you can stroll restored buildings and also enjoy Euless Heritage Museum, open a few hours each month. This history lesson is located at 201 Cullum Drive.
As for the future, Dallas-based Urban Logistics Realty has recently started clearing 22 acres at the former Cooper’s Driving Range for a warehouse and light industrial complex that will offer three buildings and about 367,000 square feet of new business opportunities for the city. Called Urban District 183, this development brings job opportunities to Industrial Boulevard and Pipeline Road in southern Euless. It’s a bright spot for the city’s future.
This new development is part of the industrial complex boom in North Texas that local media has been reporting recently. It’s powered by e-commerce company growth and other industrial needs. A spokesman for the city of Euless says their municipality is poised for new industry because of its good labor pool and proximity to the big airport.
Important To Stay Informed
With the housing market tight in Fort Worth and the surrounding area, it makes sense to stay informed as developers create new housing and jobs across the region. It’s easier to snag the right home for you and your family when you understand what’s happening nearby and who’s competing with you.
