Colleyville is a city and wealthy suburb of Fort Worth located in northeast Tarrant County, Texas, United States. Located roughly 9.5 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Emerging from a number of small, rural settlements along the Cotton Belt Route, it was established in the early 20th century for Dr. Lilburn H. Colley, a prominent area physician and a veteran of the Union Army. Colleyville was incorporated on January 10, 1956, and its city limits are now contiguous with those of Grapevine and Euless on the east, Bedford and Hurst on the south, Keller and North Richland Hills on the west and Southlake on the north. Although once a predominantly rural community, Colleyville has experienced significant residential development during the past decade. From a population of about 1,500 in 1960, it grew to 6,700 in 1980 and had an estimated population of 11,300 by 1989. The population was 22,807 at the 2010 census. Grapevine Highway (Highway 26) passes through its center, and many of its residents commute to Fort Worth.
