Hurst is a city located in the northeastern part of Tarrant County, Texas. Surrounded by the communities of Bedford, Euless, Fort Worth, Richland Hills, North Richland Hills, Grapevine, and Colleyville, the city is only 13 miles from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The city was named after William Letchworth Hurst, who agreed to let the Rock Island railroad lay track on his land, connecting nearby Fort Worth to Dallas. Once the track was laid, a depot was built, and a town was born. The city saw little growth through the first half of the 20th century. In 1951, the city became incorporated in order to prevent annexation from Fort Worth. Soon after, with the construction of a shopping center and residential living, the city finally received some recognition.
In 1972, when the city’s population was already more than 27,000, the Northeast Mall opened and the DFW Airport was built two years later. This drew homebuyers from all around. Today, there are almost 40,000 people residing within its borders.
Recently, the city of Hurst was named in D Magazine’s list of the top 50 Best Dallas Suburbs. One of the city’s most popular attractions is the aforementioned Northeast Mall. The mall, which is the third largest in the state, was ranked the #1 Shopping Mall in Tarrant County. Another hotspot in the city is the North East Rave Cinema, which opened in 2004. Other places of importance in the city include the Tarrant County College campus and the Bell Helicopter headquarters. There are more than 20 parks throughout the city that include playgrounds, trails, and athletic facilities. The city also features two water parks, the Central Aquatics Center and Chisholm Aquatics Center, and a wide array of restaurants and eateries.
With thirty neighborhoods and communities throughout the city, you’re sure to find the right place for you and your family to settle down. Some of the most popular neighborhoods include Mill Haven, Wintergreen North, Heatherwood Estates, and Bellaire Park.
Hurst is served by four public school districts, each of which have been recognized for its academics and achievements. The majority of students in the city attend the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District, which is one of the largest recognized districts in the state. HEBISD is one of the only districts to offer “Edge” programs, which include Arabic, Hindi, and Mandarin Chinese language classes at the middle school level. A small portion of the city is served by Birdville Independent School District, which recently received the highest possible accountability ratings throughout the entire district. The other two districts serve a much smaller portion of the city and they include Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and Keller ISD.
