LOCATION / POPULATION

Rowlett, one of the fastest growing cities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, is located on the northeast corner of Dallas County, and includes in its boundaries a portion of the western part of Rockwall County.

Rowlett is less than 40 minutes from downtown Dallas (east of Dallas), less than 45 minutes from DFW International Airport and 30 minutes from Love Field Airport.

The city will soon have full access to the DART rail system when the station head is finished in 2012, and completion of 1-90 will be bringing a new expansion of business to the community as it has never seen before.

Rowlett has a population of 55,000+, Average household income is $60,775+, with more than 45% of residents in the 25-45 age range.

With its many parks, park trails, sports fields, and fishing spots, Rowlett is used by the local community, and other cities for the enjoyment of its natural resources.

Rowlett is bordered on the east side of its boundaries by Lake Ray Hubbard. This lake is a water reservoir for many municipalities in the area, including Rowlett.

Since the lake was formed in the 1970's, its shorelines have become a haven for many waterfowl, including geese, ducks, loons, and coots. Turtles and other amphibians make the lakes' marshes and shorelines for their homes. The lake is a favorite of local fishermen.

INTERESTING FACT

After the Civil War, the railroads spread rapidly westward, bringing waves of settlers. The roots of many a Texas town are the railroad and a cotton gin.

The Greenville & Dallas Railroad arrived in Rowlett in 1889. By the turn of the century, Rowlett was a thriving farm community with many stores, services and its own school and churches.
