About Rowlett, TX

Rowlett is a city in Dallas, County and Rockwall County in the United states of America in Texas, and an eastern suburb of the Dallas Fort Worth Arlington metroplex. The population was 67,339 as of the 2019 United States Census Bureau estimate. It is a growing, upscale community with nearly $1.5 billion in development in the Dallas Fort Worth Arlington Metroplex, located on Lake Ray Hubbard.

Rowlett derives its name from Rowlett Creek, which flows into Lake Ray Hubbard and is a major tributary of the east fork of the Trinity River. The creek in turn was named for a waterway running through the property of Daniel Rowlett who moved from Kentucky to Bonham, Texas, in 1835. Daniel Rowlett, who was a member of the Smoot Rowlett political family, had no direct dealings with the town that now bears his name.

The first post office opened on April 5, 1880, and it was called “Morris” after Postmaster Austin Morris.

Rowlett was incorporated in 1952 when its population was 250. In the 1960s the town languished as the Interstate Highway 30 bypassed Rowlett.

The town has had a building boom since the completion of Lake Ray Hubbard in 1971 growing to 1,600 by 1973; 10,573 by 1989; 23,260 by 1990; and 44,503 by 2000.

In 2003 the town made an unsuccessful formal proposal to get the Dallas Cowboys to move to a 1,000-acre “5-Point Park” on the banks of Lake Ray Hubbard when the lease for Texas Stadium expired.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the City of Rowlett is rated number 8 on the fastest growing cities list in the United States of America with 5.1% growth from July 2017 to July 2018.
