Grapevine Tidbits

Grapevine, Texas is almost completely located in northeastern Tarrant County, with the exception of some small parts that extend into neighboring Denton and Dallas Counties. The community is in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The population of Grapevine was 46,334 according to the census that was taken in 2010. The name of the community was taken as the result of the native grapes that are prevalent in the region. Grapevine has been rather active in the maintenance of its historic corridor downtown and many different wineries have been established in the community in recent years. Grapevine Lake, which is a large reservoir that was impounded by the US Army Corps of Engineers in 1952 is adjacent to the community of Grapevine, and serves as both a recreational area and as a source of water. Grapevine is also home to a portion of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which is the largest part of any municipality that borders ing the airport. Grapevine was rated as one of the best places to live in America by CNNMoney.com in 2007.

President Sam Houston was in the middle of an ambitious settlement program when Texas was struggling as an independent Republic years prior to the Civil War. Single men and heads of families men from the northeast states and the Ohio valley were enticed with lucrative offer of land to move to Texas. However, Texas was a very rugged place to live.

General Sam Houston and his fellow Texas Republic Commissioners were camping at a place known to the white settlers as Grape Vine Springs. They were there to meet with leaders of ten Indian nations.in 1843. This meeting resulted in the signing of a treaty of commerce, friendship, and peace which opened the region up for homesteading. As the result of its location close to the Grape Vine Prairie that was close to Grape Vine Springs, the resulting community that emerged was named Grape Vine. All of these names are the result of the wild grapes that grew in the region.

Between the late 1840’s and the early 1850’s, the first recorded white settlement in what is currently a modern community was established. General Richard Gano helped to organize the early community against the Comanche raiding parties prior to leading a band of volunteers to battle in the American Civil War. General Gano owned land close to Grape Vine. In the 1800’s the growth in the new community was steady but slow. The population of Grape Vine was about 800 people by 1890. The new community was supported by such amenities as a railroad service, many cotton gins, a public school, and a newspaper.

Throughout the early 1900’s the community continued to make gains. The post office changed the name of the community from Grape Vine to Grapevine in 1914. An associate of Bonnie parker and Clyde Barrow, named Henry Methvin, Killed two State troopers named H Murphy and E Wheeler in 1934, during an incident close to Grapevine. At the intersection of State Highway 114 and Dove Road, a historical monument still stands. Historical points of interest close by include several cabins close to Grapevine Lake that were owned by Jack Ruby at one time. Mr. Ruby was the man convicted in the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was the assassin of President John F Kennedy.

In the period between the wars, as the community experienced a stagnation of the economy the population of Grapevine decreased. However, the year 1936 brought the incorporation of grapevine as a city. Up until the early 1900’s when the primary crop in Grapevine was cotton, but was overtaken by cantaloupe farms that accounted for about 25,000 acres. Up until the early 1970’s and for many decades, the sign on the Rotary Club reportedly said something to the effect that Grapevine was the Cantaloupe Capital of the World. Immediately following World War II, economic gains and population growth somewhat resumed. However, when the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened in 1974 there was massive development in the region. Grapevine relied heavily on the production of agriculture before the middle 1900’s. However, as the result of its close proximity to the north entrance of the airport, the community was rapidly transformed into a regional center of commerce. To this day, the economic benefits of the construction of the airport are continuing to encourage new levels of development in Grapevine.

Engine 2248 was originally constructed at the Cooke Locomotive Works in Patterson, NJ in 1896. The Southern pacific Railroad bought the engine, which was also used for freight and passenger service in California. The engine is currently known as Puffy, and was later made into a fire train and subsequently used as a ceremonial engine.

In 1976, the engine helped to launch the Texas State Railroad Excursion, and later the local Tarantula run sponsored by the Fort Worth and Western Railroad. In 1993, the engine made the first trip to Grapevine and is currently a permanent resident.

The 1925 engines pull the four luxurious Victorian coaches of the Vintage Railroad in Grapevine as well as two 1927 open air touring coaches. All four of these day coaches have been rejuvenated to their original Victorian period glory and the two open air coaches are very popular during the spring and fall months.
