Introduction to Kennedale, Texas

Kennedale History

The area where Kennedale is located has been inhabited since the 1860s. The site was chosen because of its proximity to a mineral water well. The area was eventually purchased by Oliver S. Kennedy, John D. Hudson and C.B. Teague. A post office was established in 1884. In 1886, the region was surveyed and named after Oliver S. Kennedy, a local attorney who donated a number of plots to the Southern Pacific Railroad to encourage them to build a railroad through the city. Kennedale prospered after the defense industry developed in Forth Worth. The city was incorporated in 1947.
