Introduction to Crowley, Texas

Crowley, Texas, in Tarrant county, is 10 miles S of Fort Worth, Texas.

Crowley History

In the late 1840s, pioneers began farming in the region around Deer Greek. When the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway laid tracks in the area, the families moved to a new spot closer to the tracks. This site was about a mile away from the original location. The community came to be known as "Crowley" in honor of S.H. Crowley, a railroad official. In 1882, a post office was established, and three years later, a train depot was built. The community was incorporated as a town on February 3, 1951. On September 3, 1972, it officially became a city.
