More About Flower Mound by Jimmy Ruth Hilliard Martin
 
 
 
Overview
Flower Mound was originally known only as an area seven miles west of Lewisville, Texas. The city was incorporated in 1961, and its official name is derived from a mound that rose 50 feet above the surrounding flat Blackland Prairie. In the springtime, it is covered with beautiful wildflowers, thus the name. Inhabitants have never lived on the mound. The rich soil was good farmland and its grass gave support for raising cattle. In the early years, nothing was known of the rich gas shale that rested beneath its soil. While the modern city of Flower Mound has a 50-year history, past generations have a story to tell. The modern city of Flower Mound confidently moves forward as shopping centers, medical facilities, and gas wells dot its promising horizons.
