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!

More than 150 years ago, wagon trains traveling west stopped for the night at a place called Blossom Prairie. Today, Southlake's log house sits there, at the White Chapel Blvd. entrance to Bicentennial Park, under the water tower.
