Colleyville started as an extremely rural community settled by a few farmers from Missouri and Kentucky. In the 1850s, the first settlement began to take place around Little Bear Creek. It was a small settlement of just a few farms until the 19th century when a few prominent families bought land and began to expand the settlement, including a vineyard and an orchard. A few rural stores and churches began popping up including one in what is now Colleyville. The St. Louis & Southwestern Railroad was extended through the area in 1888, and a small community called Bransford relocated near the rail and grew quickly, adding general stores, a stable, and with multiple doctors in town.
Doctor Lilburn Howard Colley was a Union Army veteran who came to Bransford in 1880, and quickly became one of the most well known physicians in the area. A small community formed around a general store on what is now known as Glade Road and it became known as “Colleyville.” Slowly, the small surrounding communities merged into Colleyville, and it was incorporated in 1956. Today, Colleyville has grown significantly and is a quiet, yet central place to live. Fort Worth and Dallas are easily accessible via highways 26, and 121.
