Watering holes have played important rolls throughout Texas history. One such place was known as Grape Vine Springs.
Years before the Civil War, when Texas was a struggling independent Republic, President Sam Houston traveled from Austin and made camp at the Springs for two weeks. It was here that he met with members of 10 Native American nations to sign a treaty of peace and friendship. This treaty opened North Texas to US settlement and within a year the first settlers arrived.
Named for the wild Mustang grapes that were abundant, the area became known as Grapevine, Texas. Today more than 50,000 people call Grapevine home. And while the Springs are now surrounded by urban development, the "can-do" spirit still thrives.
We proudly honor our Texas heritage.
