The Southlake area was settled by pioneers in the 1840s but was not incorporated as Southlake until 1956, 4 years after Grapevine Lake was finished. Before incorporation, Dove, Jellico, Union Church and Whites Chapel settlements make up present day Southlake. Today, commercial and residential growth continues in a big way. But it’s the people, not the growth, that made the city what it is. It’s the people who walked incorporation petitions door to door in 1956. They’re the ones who over the years have attended innumerable meetings of the city council and of citizen’s advisory groups, coming together to voice both suggestions and concerns.
It’s the teachers and school board members and volunteers who formed an exemplary school district from a small school that got no respect. And it’s old friends and new who helped and encouraged one another, whether at church, in their neighborhoods or through the chamber of commerce or various civic clubs.
Ask anyone who’s lived in Southlake for more than a few decades, and he or she will tell you it was the people who made Southlake. And that continues today.
Some things never change.
