Getting To Know Keller, TX
Keller works hard to create and maintain that welcoming feel. With such an excellent school system both private and public and its variety of shopping and dining destinations it’s no wonder we’ve been nationally recognized for our parks and recreation and voted Great Places to Live!

History of Keller, TX
First established as a ‘village’ near Double Springs in the 1850’s the town was originally called Athol. With the news from Texas & Pacific Railroad that they were bringing the railroad north of Fort Worth, the farm and ranch settlement began to bloom. By 1882, encouraged by the T&P Railroad the town was renamed Keller after railroad foreman John C. Keller. You can still see glimpses of times gone by if you know where to look. Check out Historic Old Town Keller area on Main Street with it’s many local hot spots, restaurants and community events as well as the handful of craftsman style homes now turned into local businesses.
Of course the water tower, at the corner of Main (US 377) and Keller Pkwy. which was originally owned by the Johnson family is the most iconic landmark. (see the full water tower story here)
