History

The Southlake area was settled by pioneers in the 1840s, but was not incorporated Southlake until 1956, four years after Lake Grapevine was finished.[4] Before incorporation, the settlements of Whites Chapel, Dove, Union Church and Jellico made up present day Southlake. The area remained rural until the completion of the DFW International Airport opened in the 1970's. Due to the close proximity to the airport, Southlake became a boom-burb through out the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's. As of 2010, Southlake's population is almost at its full capacity of around 30,000 people.
