First settled in the 1850s, the City of Keller, owes its name to forward thinking local citizens and two influential men working for the Texas and Pacific Railway. The citizens of what was then known as Athol, offered to name the town after railroad foreman John C. Keller if the site became a permanent stop on the railway line. The railroad agreed and in 1882 the name of the town was changed to Keller.
Fast forward to today and Keller has become far more than a stop on the railroad line. Entering Keller, visitors are impressed by the number of trees in the neighborhoods and the prominent rolling terrain. Lying just four miles from interstate 35W, ten miles from DFW Airport or Alliance Airport, fifteen miles from downtown Fort Worth, and 25 miles from downtown Dallas, Keller’s easy access to transportation and major regional population centers has spelled success for the affluent city. Keller regularly wins awards for its quality of life from national organizations and publications such as CNN/Money Magazine, REALTOR.com, and the Texas Economic Development Council.
Keller demonstrates its commitment to green space and public health with more than 300 acres of parkland and 19 miles of hike and bike trails. The 87,940 square foot Keller Pointe fitness and community center provides over 6,000 square feet of exercising space and a 17,000 square foot outdoor swimming area.
An element of any successful city is found in its schools, and Keller is no exception. Keller ISD serves the city and surrounding communities with 39 campuses and The Natatorium on Bear Creek Parkway. The school district has an established reputation for outstanding performance in academics, sports, and fiscal management, and attracts prospective residents with its pledge to pursue excellence.
