The city of Euless is an eastern suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, located about 10 miles north of Arlington. The city is built on a stretch of land that was purchased in March of 1879 by a Tennessee man named Elisha Adam Euless. Elisha built a home on his new property, then immediately petitioned the county to build a road through his property to the county line. The county accepted his request and appointed him (among others) to lay out the new road. Soon after, a community started to develop around his land. Elisha built and began running a cotton gin in the area, as well as a community center. As time went on, his community was able to thrive and the local farmers honored him for all that he had done by naming it after him. In 1894, Elisha was elected to be the first sheriff of Tarrant County. After two terms as sheriff, he suffered a fatal stroke in 1911 and was buried in Fort Worth’s Oakwood Cemetery.
At that time, the small community only housed about 30 residents. By the time of its incorporation, in 1953, the city’s population had grown to more than 4,000. As the years went by, the city would continue to grow steadily and today there are more than 54,000 people residing here.
Living in Euless is nothing short of fun and exciting. The city is home to Arbor Daze, an extremely popular festival that is held on the last weekend of every April. Essentially, the festival is a celebration of trees – hence the name. At the celebration, there are several tents and concert stages erected, including a large Kidz Zone tent. Having recently received nearly 50 awards and recognitions, Arbor Daze is one of the most notable and decorated festivals in the state of Texas. The city is also home to more than 300 acres of parkland, which includes playgrounds, athletic fields and courts, gazebos, swimming pools and aquatic centers, and the Texas Star Golf Course. Just minutes from the DFW International Airport, the 275-acre golf course has been highly ranked by Golf Digest, Golfweek, T&L Golf, and the Dallas Morning News.
There are now more than 60 well-developed communities and neighborhoods in Euless. The median household income in this city averages between $54,000 AND $55,000. Some of the most popular neighborhoods include Cinnamon Ridge, Trinity Glen, Little Bear, and Bell Ranch Terrace.
Most students in the city are served by Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District, one of the largest recognized public school districts in Texas. There are currently 27 campuses in the district, including 20 elementary schools, five junior high schools, and two high schools. Some students in the city also attend schools in Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District, a district that boasts numerous awards and achievements. Recently, eleven campuses in the district have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U. S. Department of Education, four of which were listed in the “National Center for Education Achievement’s Higher Performing Schools List” in 2011. In addition to the amazing public education the city has to offer, Euless is also home to the highly acclaimed charter school – Harmony Science Academy.
