Colleyville is a city in northeastern Tarrant County, Texas, United States, centrally located in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. A wealthy suburb of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Colleyville was originally a small farm town in the 19th century. The population was 22,807 at the 2010 census.[5]


Emerging from a number of small, rural settlements along the Cotton Belt Route, Colleyville was originally known as Bransford when Dr. Lilburn Howard Colley settled there in 1880. He was a prominent area physician and a veteran of the Union Army. In 1914, when Walter G. Couch opened a grocery store near Dr. Colley's home, the community was renamed Colleyville in his honor.[6]

On January 15, 2022, a hostage crisis occurred at Congregation Beth Israel, a synagogue in Colleyville. Four hostages were held for a number of hours before police shot and killed the perpetrator.[7] The FBI said it was investigating the incident as a "federal hate crime" and an "act of terrorism".[8]


Colleyville is located at 32°53′6″N 97°8′57″W / 32.88500°N 97.14917°W / 32.88500; -97.14917 (32.885062, –97.149233).[9]

According to the United States Census Bureau[citation needed], the city has a total area of 13.1 square miles (33.9 km2), with approximately 0.08% of its area as water.

Colleyville Heritage High School

Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District serves most of the city. The district operates eleven elementary schools (pre-kindergarten through 5th grade), four middle schools (6th–8th grades), and two high schools (9th–12th grades). Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine High School both draw students from different areas of Colleyville.

Northwestern Colleyville lies inside Keller Independent School District, which maintains one campus within the city. Birdville Independent School District, Carroll Independent School District, and Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District also serve small portions of Colleyville.

Colleyville Covenant Christian Academy is a private religious school serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and is a fully accredited member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools.


Roads and highways[edit]

Two Texas state highways run through city limits. Texas State Highway 121 runs along a portion of the eastern edge of Colleyville, while Texas State Highway 26, also known as Colleyville Boulevard or Grapevine Highway, bisects the city, running southwest to northeast. The speed limit on every road in the city is 30 mph, excluding the 45 mph speed limit on Highway 26 set by TxDOT.


The Grapevine Vintage Railroad runs through the city along the former Cotton Belt Route right-of-way, offering rides on vintage locomotives from downtown Grapevine to downtown Fort Worth. Commuter rail service began on January 10, 2019, with the introduction of TEXRail,[19] offering service from Fort Worth to DFW Airport through Northeast Tarrant County. Due to immense opposition from the Colleyville City Council and residents, the commuter train does not stop in Colleyville, so the closest stations are the North Richland Hills/Smithfield station to the west and the Grapevine station to the east.


Two major airports serve passengers in the Metroplex. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world, provides airline services to over 200 destinations. American Airlines, headquartered nearby in Fort Worth, maintains its largest hub at DFW. Colleyville has experienced significant population growth because of its proximity to the airport. Dallas Love Field, in Northwest Dallas, is home to the headquarters of Southwest Airlines and serves as a focus city for the airline.


The Cotton Belt Trail[20] is an eleven-mile bicyclist and pedestrian trail that lies parallel to the former Cotton Belt Route railroad through Grapevine, Colleyville, Hurst, and North Richland Hills, with 3.4 miles running through Colleyville. The Colleyville Nature Center also provides a 1.25 mile hiking trail.
