In 1906, a new well was drilled on Main Street and remained in service until 1960. This is the beautiful history the City of Keller is nestled in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, just minutes from the DFW airport and local bordering neighborhoods of Westlake, Roanoke, Southlake, and Colleyville. Keller gained national attention by pairing big-city conveniences and amenities with the small-town roots and an emphasis on a quality of life. Keller had benefited not only from being situated on the Texas and Pacific Railroad – it had the advantage of U.S. Highway 377 which runs from Fort Worth to Denton Texas.
The city is blessed with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, an excellent school system, a wide variety of shopping and dining destinations, and award-winning city facilities and many area parks, with trails.
The distinct business districts, historic Old Town Keller and the urban Keller Town Center, are just two of our unique economic engines. The citywide parks and trails system, anchored by Big Bear Creek, offers recreation and mobility among the city’s recreation and aquatics center, The Keller Pointe, and multiple sports facilities. The Keller Public Library offers more than 80,000 in materials and a slew of online resources, and next door, the Keller Senior Activities Center brings senior citizens together for stimulation activities, with emphasis on health and fellowship.
Keller has been named to CNN/Money Magazine’s biennial listing of “Top 100 Places to Live- America’s Best Small Towns” three times since 2007, including taking seventh place in 2009. Recent awards have included a spot in D Magazine’s “Top 20 Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Suburbs,” mentions in Fort Worth, Texas Magazine’s ” Best Places to Live” lists, recognition as an “Emerging Art Town” by Southwest Art Magazine, certification as a Scenic City by the Scenic Texas organization, and third place among the “Top 10 <ost Notable High-Growth Areas in the Country,” according to the Gadberry Group.
