Dallas, Texas was founded in 1841 by a man named John Neely Bryan, who settled over on the east bank of the Trinity River. Bryan chose this spot, which was adjacent to a natural ford in the river, as the location for a trading post. The ford in the river happened to be the best river crossing-point for miles, hence an ideal location to catch travelers. While the origin of the name Dallas remains unknown, it’s thought to have come from one of three possible candidates: George Mifflin Dallas – Vice President of the United States (1845-1849), Commodore Alexander J. Dallas – U.S. Navy, or Joseph Dallas – an early settler of the region.
Dallas County was officially formed in the year 1846, with Dallas becoming the temporary county seat until it was voted in as the official county seat in 1850. Dallas was incorporated as a town in 1856. Starting in the mid-1870s, Dallas shifted from being predominantly an agricultural community to becoming a self-sustaining industrial city. The 1880s brought the Missouri-Kansas Texas Railroad to the city and in 1888 the Dallas Zoo opened its doors, becoming the first zoo in the state. With the annexation of East Dallas in 1890, the city became the most populous city in Texas. Today, Dallas is the third largest city in terms of population in the state and the eighth most populous city in the entire U.S.
