History

The area of Carrollton was first settled in 1842, fairly soon after that, in 1844, the first mill was established. It is most likely that Carrollton was named for Carrollton, Illinois, the original home of many of the first settlers. From this time, until the 1870′s, Carrollton’s economy was based almost exclusively on agriculture. But following the construction of the Dallas-Wichita Railroad in 1878, the community began to grow it’s industrial base. Carrollton’s significance was further strengthened when the railroad was extended to Denton in 1880. By 1885, Carrollton has flour mills, cotton gins, two churches, a school, and a population of 150. When the St. Louis-Southwestern Railway crossed the Katy Line in 1888 the town became a shipping center for livestock, cotton, cottonseed, and grain, helping the town’s economy surpass the settlement of Trinity Mills to the north.

In 1913, Carrollton was incorporated and after World War II the city grew rapidly. In 1950, it’s population stood at 1610, it then grew to 4,242 by 1960 and 13,855 in 1970. In the 1970′s, significant suburban growth began to spill out of North Dallas and the city grew at a tremendously rapid pace during that decade. By 1983, the population was 52,000, by 1990, it had reached 82,169. The 2000 census put Carrollton at 109,576 residents and current estimates put the city at a population of 129,209.
