Every day, we think about just how fortunate we are to live and work in Lewisville. Located just outside of Dallas, we have a small-town feel but offer lots of things to do. Let us take you on a tour of our community — we know you’ll fall in love with Lewisville just like we have.
Back in Time
Lewisville has grown quite a bit since its founding in the 1840s. The town started off as a settlement community of 600 families, and it wasn’t until 1925 that it was formally incorporated. At that time, you would find cotton gins and a couple of saloons here. Fun fact: In 1925, the speed limit for automobiles was 18 mph.
Further into the century, the town population grew through the 1940s, and by 1970, the population had grown to 9,200 people. When home builders saw the potential here, they started putting up neighborhoods seemingly overnight. By 1980, the population had hit 25,000.
With continued population growth along with job growth during the 1990s, Lewisville became even more popular, and the population hit almost 50,000. Since that time, the population has doubled. With so much to do here, it can’t help but be popular.
Activities for the Whole Family
Lewisville is part of southern Denton County, along with Flower Mound, Highland Village and The Colony. The county features many great restaurants, golf courses, and 29,000-acre Lewisville Lake, with lots of fun activities for the whole family.
Lewisville Lake is a reservoir constructed by the Army Corps of Engineers. Activities include fishing, water sports, boating, and hiking and biking trails in the 9,000 protected acres of nature surrounding the lake.
If you like fishing, you’ll be glad to know that the lake is the official “Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas.” You can catch largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and more. When you’re done with fishing, head to Lewisville Lake Park to enjoy a picnic, swimming, or rent a jet ski.
