History of Coppell, TX
The area was on the original land grant to J. A. Simmonds. The site was first settled in the mid-1800s by James Parish, from Goliad. In 1887, the community secured its first post office. Coppell was originally named Gibbs Station, after Barnett Gibbs, a large landowner in the area.
In 1888, construction was completed on the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway, which traveled through Coppell. In 1892, the depot was renamed Coppell, in honor of banker and financier George A. Coppell. In 1914, the settlement had: 2 churches; 2 general stores; 2 blacksmiths; a bank; a hardware store, and had telephone service. The 1914 population was 450. By 1926, the population had decreased to 200, where it remained for three decades.
In 1936, the Works Projects Administration (WPA)* built a park on Grapevine Creek that included a half mile of walkways, three bridges, and a dam. The park was located among groves of oak, pecan, and cottonwood trees. Four years later the community had 10 businesses, a school and 2 churches. During this time, Coppell produced a variety of agricultural products including: cotton, wheat, oats, sweet potatoes, peanuts, and melons. The community grew slowly during the 1950s, and in 1956 formed a city government, which established a city zoning plan. By 1960 Coppell had 6 businesses and a population of about 670. In 1962, the community was incorporated, and 7 years later Coppell had set up a tax structure and constructed a new jail.
In the 1970s, the town expanded northward into southern Denton County, built a new courthouse, and completed the General Telephone Company building (1972). Two years later Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Airport opened and a municipal utilities district was established.
By this time Coppell had: a population of 2,500, ambulance service, police and fire departments, 5 churches, and schools. The population had grown to 3,826 in 1984. Between 1981 and 1984, the number of businesses grew from 14 to 31. In 1984 a $16.3 million bond was approved to improve the street system, construct a new civic center and 3 new fire stations, increase the size of the park system, and install an emergency-warning system. Three years later Coppell secured the Coppell Mail Center, a bulk mail-sorting plant for the federal postal service.
* The Works Projects Administration (WPA) was the largest and most ambitious American New Deal Agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads. The WPA was established near the end of The Great Depression (1939). In about 1935, the U.S. Unemployment Rate was around 21%.
In December of 1941, World War II began, which created a lot of work within the defense industry. In 1943, the U.S. Unemployment Rate was around 3%.
