Irving (Dallas County)

-A A +A

Irving was founded in 1903 in anticipation of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad building west out of Dallas. Irving’s main claim to fame was the Texas Stadium (1971–2010, A. Warren Morey), the original gridiron of the Dallas Cowboys football team, until the team’s owner moved to a new stadium (AW4) in Arlington. By the late twentieth century, suburban growth from Dallas had spread across the prairie to Irving. The development of Las Colinas (GF5), a master-planned mixed-use complex along Carpenter Freeway (TX 114), brought an intense corporate presence to Irving’s northern edge.
