History of Lake Dallas, Texas

The town was first settled in the 1850s but did not formally take the name Lake Dallas until 1929. Now the home of roughly 6,000 people, Lake Dallas saw most of its population growth between 1970 and the present as business and commerce filled in the DFW metro area. The median family income of the city’s inhabitants is slightly higher than the state median, with very few residents living under the national poverty line.
