GRAPEVINE: HISTORY & HOSPITALITY
Grapevine’s story began in 1843 when General Sam Houston and representatives of the Republic of Texas met with 10 leaders of American Indian nations. They joined to negotiate a treaty of peace and friendship at Grape Vine Springs, which resulted in a document, the Treaty of Birds Fort that opened the area to homesteaders. Within a year, the first settlers arrived in rolling covered wagons. The wild mustang grapes that were abundant gave the area its name, Grapevine.
Grapevine is the oldest settlement in Tarrant County, originating under the Lone Star flag of the Republic of Texas in 1844, a year before Texas was annexed by the United States of America. Today, the city has grown into a thriving center of culture and commerce, anchored by the hospitality industry. Venues such as the buildings along Historic Main Street, the Grapevine Vintage Railroad, Nash Farm, the Settlement to City Museums and more combine to remind locals and visitors alike about the history and heritage of this amazing city.
