Grand Prairie Tidbits

The early settlers to Grand Prairie were greeted by a lone coyote resting underneath some underbrush and some tall grasses swaying in the breeze. The current residents of this community can still see these sights.

In 1841, a series of land grants offered to investors by the Republic of Texas known as the Peters Colony attracted many early settlers to the area. A man named David Jorden and his sons arrived in the area from Tennessee at approximately that same time. They brought with them the first slaves to the area. One of them whose descendants still live in the area was a man named Mose Jorden.

Two brothers named James and Marion Lloyd relocated from Dallas searching for more room to graze their horses and cattle and settled at Walnut Creek, which is currently known as Lake Joe Pool. Eventually, the Lloyd family established a school on their land that served the community for 40 years and their ancestral home still remains in Lloyd Park.

A man named Alexander Dechman, who was living in Birdville when he discovered that he could trade his oxen and wagon for some land in Dallas County. Mr. Dechman purchased 240 acres what is currently known as downtown Grand Prairie. However, he was unable to build a home here prior to 1862, when he joined the Texas Calvary.

In 1863, Mr. Dechman filed a title on his prairie land with the county. The actually established what would eventually be known as Grand Prairie. Eventually, he decided to grant the right of way through his land to the railroad. In 1873, the construction of the railroad was stopped as the result of the depression. However, this didn’t deter people from settling in Dechman. In 1874, a post office was established and in 1876 Mr. Dechman filed a town plat, and traded his remaining lots to the Texas and Pacific Railroad for the privilege of operating a depot.

In 1876, service was started after the tracks were eventually extended to Fort Worth from Dechman. The name of the railroad was changed to the Dechman Grand Prairie in 1877, as the result of its location on the easternmost border of the vast Grand Prairie that stretched into West Texas. By horseback, it was a day ride from the three block Grand Prairie to Dallas.

In 1902, the Interurban trolley service between Dallas and Fort Worth made this trip much easier. These trolleys ran on the hour between 6:00AM and 11;)) Pm on a single track that cost two cents for every mile. In took one hour and 35 minutes to make the whole trip between the two big cities.

The Grand Prairie Independent School District was also established in 1902. In 1905, the first school bonds were issued, which totaled $8,000. This money was used to construct a two story brick school building at 214 W. College Street.

As the community of Grand Prairie grew, burgeoning neighborhoods were wrought with problems, such as the need for regulations and a public water system that would force residents to keep their outhouses and property clean, as well as fire hazards brought about by houses that were constructed too close together. A growing number of residents who recognized these needs, started pushing for the community to incorporate as a city. In 1908, the first vote for incorporation failed. However, those residents who wanted incorporation reintroduced the measure in 1909. The year 1909 brought the incorporation of Grand Prairie as a city.

The downtown area of the newly incorporated Grand Prairie was growing exponentially. The community a short order restaurant that offered barbeque, meats, and cold beverages, a carriage maker, a hardware store, a lumberyard, a post office, a hotel, a millinery shop, a drugstore, a laundry, a barbershop, two blacksmiths, a grocery store, a dry goods store, and a cotton gin. One proprietor placed a cement sidewalk in front of his home on Main Street. The Commercial Club was so impressed that that they passed a resolution commending the improvement. In order to combat the ever present mud, other residents were quick to join in on the ensuing campaign for cement sidewalks.

The majority of the fires in the community we fought with bucket brigades including a fire that destroyed a doctor’s office, a saddle shop, and a grocery store in 1903 up until 1917, when an organized fire department was established. In 1909 a bucket brigade was of little use when a fire erupted in the train depot and destroyed a complete block of businesses. A fire that destroyed six businesses prompted the citizens of the community to request a community water system in late 1909, which, in 1911, was finally approved.

The business in the community was comprised primarily of bring pavement to dirt roads, water to buildings, street paving and water line projects between the 1910’s and the 1920’s. A doctor named Horace Copland introduced the first automobile to Dallas County in 1910. During his 60 year career the good doctor had helped to deliver over 4,000 babies. The first senior class graduated from the Grand Prairie high school in 1911. The senior class was comprised of only four students.
