Thanks for visiting our website, our "museum" filled with stories about Southlake's past and lots of photos.
Whether you are an old-timer or a newcomer, living in Southlake is a much richer experience when you know its history.
Click on our Magical History Tour, the History of Southlake (under Area West of Grapevine, see a map that shows where stills, beer joints and a dog track were located) and the more than 300 photos in the Photo & Video Gallery.
In Buildings & Markers, learn about the 1919 Carroll School, where Carroll ISD AND the city of Southlake were born; Southlake’s log house, built of logs cut about the time Lincoln was president; and the 10 historical markers in town, including one that commemorates state troopers killed at Dove Road and Texas 114 by Bonnie and Clyde and/or a member of their gang.
Take a look around. Thanks for stopping by!

THANK YOU, SOUTHLAKE!
Despite the drizzly weather, families turned out for the wildflower Buffalo Stomp.
Come spring, the Blossom Prairie Wildflower Meadows that encircle the Southlake Log House will be all dressed up.
Blossom Prairie once served as a campground for families heading west by wagon train in the 1800s. And Southlake families recently enjoyed sprinkling and stomping wildflower seeds into that same fertile ground.
Flanders poppies were included in the mix in anticipation of the commemoration of the the country's 100th anniversary of the United States involvement in World War I.
Special thanks to our partner in this program, Nature Reach. Visit their website for more information on how history and nature can work together to enrich our children's lives.
