Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

homes for sale in flower mound txNot every town has its roots firmly entrenched in the era of cowboys, prairie wagons, and western expansion, but homes for sale in Flower Mound, TX rest on ground that was once part of the Wild, Wild West. Not every town gets to boast the heritage of people like Sam Houston, and not every town contains what may have been an ancient Native American burial ground, but Flower Mound does, and it has a rich history to share.

According to the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), Flower Mound was founded when Sam Houston quelled local raids on settlers trying to pass through the area. The year was 1844, and tensions between expansionists and Native Americans were running high. Fortunately for the settlers under Houston’s protection, the area had rich soil good for growing corn, wheat, and cotton.

The name “Flower Mound” came, as one would assume, from a low hill covered with Bluestem, Indian Grass, Switch Grass and wildflowers that rose about 50 feet from the prairie below. The mound may have been sacred to local Native Americans, likely the Wichita, even though no human remains have been found.

In the 1860’s, the Chisholm Trail brought life and thoroughfare for the small town of Flower Mound, but instead of the cars and speed limits on today’s Chisholm Trail Parkway, the original trail was traversed by cattle headed to markets and rail cars--over 6 million in the 20 years following the Civil War,. Through the ensuing decades, the town gradually grew with the addition of stores like Yoakley’s and The Donald Academy.

The Great Depression brought destruction to much of the Midwest, but because of the fertile soil found in the Flower Mound, TX area, Flower Mound remained a steady producer of crops and cattle, a testament to both the worth of the land and the will of the people who lived on it.

While Flower Mound remained relatively static in the years following the Depression, the 1950’s saw tremendous growth, thanks to the construction of Grapevine Lake by the United States Corps of Engineers in 1953. Since then, the town has grown exponentially and boasts awards such as Wall Street 24/7’s “Best Places to Live” awards.

Homes for sale in Flower Mound, TX provide a great return on your investment, and the beautiful, historical, growing town of Flower Mound is great for families.
