History

The earliest settlement in the area of what is now Lewisville occurred in the 1840′s. Basdeal Lewis purchased the land around which Lewisville would be formed and named the town after his family. Growth was very slow during the 1800′s, with the population rising to only around 500 people by 1900. The settlement had several agriculture related industries, including a gristmill, a cotton gin, a livery stable and a feed mill. In 1885, the building currently housing the Greater Lewisville Community Theater was constructed on Main Street. It remains Lewisville’s oldest standing structure.

Lewisville High School opened in 1897 and in 1925 residents voted to incorporate the settlement making it the City of Lewisville. Lewisville slowly grew with its first automobile dealership and traffic light appearing over the next two decades. That single signal light, at the intersection of Main and Mill Streets, remained the only traffic signal in the city until the 1970′s.

The Lewisville Dam was completed in 1954, which expanded the Garza-Little Elm Reservoir into the current 30,000 acre Lewisville Lake. The population growth began to accelerate, and by the 1970 census there were 9,264 residents. The growth was mainly west of downtown Lewisville and kept moving west as housing replaced farms.

The Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport opened in 1974, and the populations of cities like Lewisville and Flower Mound, both north of the new airport, began to explode. The census figures tell the story: 24,273 in 1980, 46,521 in 1990, 77,737 in 2000 and today 105,217 residents.
