About Flower Mound
Centrally located in North Texas near the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Flower Mound is a family-oriented community that prides itself on maintaining a small town atmosphere while embracing and fostering a dynamic economic development environment. Providing quick and convenient access to the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, DFW International Airport, and numerous recreational opportunities, Flower Mound has emerged as the best place in North Texas to live, work, and play.
The Town of Flower Mound derived its name from The Mound. It rises 650 feet above sea level, and it stands 50 feet above the surrounding countryside. Texas’ eminent historian, the late A.C. Greene, believed the hill received its name in the 1840s because of an unusual amount of wild flowers that grew on it. Because early pioneer settlers used The Mound as a hay meadow and never plowed, the wild flowers were conspicuously abundant in wet springs. However, wildflowers and native prairie grasses flourish throughout the year. The non-profit Mound Foundation has identified more than 175 species of wild flowers.
