Euless, TexasGeneral-

Early settlement called Bird's Fort was established just south of the present city in 1841.  The community began when settlers reached the confluence Big Bear and Little Bear creeks on the eastern edge of present Euless, which is now part of the giant Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport.  A post office was founded in 1857 and named Estill's Station.  Many of the settlers moved to present Euless, and the post office closed in 1868.  In 1881, Elisha Adam Euless, pioneer from Tennessee, built a home and cotton gin nearby.  The settlement that grew around his gin was named in his honor.

Today the city is a thriving community in the middle of the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.  Many national and regional businesses are headquartered here with the convenience to the D/FW Airport.

Euless is widely known for its trees and its Arbor Daze Festival each April promotes and celebrates the planting of trees through the city.
