Lewisville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country – it is also one of the oldest incorporated cities in the state of Texas. Settled in the 1840s, this small town was boosted by the railroad in 1881, and the city incorporated in 1925. Lewisville’s population soared once again when Lewisville Lake was completed in the 1950s. When the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport opened in 1974, the city’s population grew even more. Today, this popular city is one of the top 25 in the nation for population growth.
