Discover the Joys of Living in Keller, Texas
Another component of the greater Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, Keller has, in its own words, been “pairing big-city conveniences and amenities with small-town roots and an emphasis on quality of life” for over half a century. The city is home to an array of shopping/dining/tourist opportunities as well as highly-rated public services and municipal facilities and programs.
Keller is located along the western edge of the Eastern Cross Timbers, in present day Tarrant County, though the city can trace its lineage back to the 1840s, when this area was settled by families moving westward from Missouri. Later in the nineteenth century, the Texas and Pacific Railroad was constructed between Ft. Worth and Texarkana, and Keller (initially called Athol) was one of many small villages that sprang up along the line. It was official incorporated in 1955.
Today, Keller has grown to encompass over 18 square miles and has a population of almost 50,000. It is home to a network of trails spanning more than 26 miles, all anchored to Big Bear Creek, as well as multiple sports facilities and The Keller Pointe, an 88,000 sq. ft. recreation and aquatics center. Keller has been listed on Money magazine’s “Top 100 Places to Live—America’s Small Towns” 3 times since 2007, and been named an “Emerging Art Town” by Southwest Art Magazine.
