GRAND PRAIRIE, TX local information
HISTORY of Grand Prairie
In 1863, Alexander McRae Dechman from Birdville traded his wagon, oxen team, and $200 in Confederate money for a plot of land in Dallas County, just east of the Trinity River. Dechman filed a town plat in 1876 giving every other lot to the T&P (Texas and Pacific) Railroad to ensure the railroad came through the town in exchange for operating a depot there.
The railroad depot was named “Dechman” as was the post office, which opened in 1877. Confusion arose when the T&P Railroad designated the area as Grand Prairie. This name was based on maps from 1850 to 1858 that labeled the area between Dallas and Fort Worth as “the grand prairie of Texas”. To alleviate the confusion, the Postal Service named the post office Grand Prairie. In 1909, the town of Grand Prairie was incorporated as a city.
Grand Prairie currently has over 180,000 people in a city with an ideal location and a hometown atmosphere.
Grand Prairie is conveniently located between Dallas and Fort Worth and is just 15 minutes from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. There are plenty of highways for residents and visitors driving within and through the city. Interstate highways 20 and 30 run east-west through the northern and southern parts of the city while Texas State Highways Spur 303 and 180 also run east-west in the northern and central portions of Grand Prairie.
SH 161 (the President George Bush Turnpike) runs north-south through western Grand Prairie. Belt Line Road is a major north-south thoroughfare in the city.
