Grapevine History

Sam Houston and his fellow commissioners of the Republic of Texas camped at Tah-Wah-Karro Creek in October, 1843. They planned to meet the leaders of 10 Indian tribes. The meeting resulted in the signing of a treaty of friendship, peace, and commerce. This opened up the area for settlement by pioneers and homesteaders. The area was named Grapevine because it was located on the Grape Vine Prairie, and the region was blanketed by wild mustang grapes. Settlers started coming to the area in the later years of the 1840s.
