Colleyville History

Colleyville has its beginnings as one of several small, rural settlements along the Cotton Belt Route starting from the 1850s. Initially, what would be known as Colleyville was known as Bransford, which was named after the general store and post office of Felix G. Bransford. However, that was bound to change with the 1880 arrival of Lilburn Howard Colley, who was a physician and Union Army veteran. Within the next few decades, Colley became one of the most beloved physicians in northeast Tarrant County for his leadership and active practice. So, when a man by the name of Walter G. Couch opened a grocery store near Colley’s home, and a community formed around it, the entire area was named “Colleyville” in the doctor’s honor. Colleyville was incorporated on January 10, 1956. For the rest of the 20th century, it blossomed from a small, rural town to a prosperous residential area.
