Flower Mound's History
The town of Flower Mound derives its name from a prominent 12.5-acre Flower Mound located in the southern portion of the town. After settlers used the site for religious camps during the 1840s, the area around Flower Mound was first permanently inhabited in the 1850s; however, residents did not incorporate until 1961. Although an effort to create a planned community failed in the early 1970s, Flower Mound's population increased substantially when DFW International Airport opened to the south in 1974.
