History

Euless is named after Elisha Adam Euless, a native of Tennessee who moved to Texas in 1867 and later bought 170 acres (0.69 km2) of land on the current intersection of North Main St. and West Euless Boulevard.[4] Elisha started a Cotton Gin and a community center on his property, and quickly became a prominent figure among other settlers. The community developed around the land Elisha owned and decided to name the city "Euless," in honor of a successful businessman and farmer.
