Duncanville, Texas is a city located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. It has a rich history dating back to the 1800s. In the early 1800s, the area that is now Duncanville was used as a trading post by Native American tribes. The first European settlers arrived in the mid-1800s, and by the early 1900s, the community had grown to include a general store, a blacksmith shop, and a few homes.
In 1880, the town was officially incorporated and named after a local businessman, Crawford Duncan. The community continued to grow throughout the early 1900s, with the construction of a post office, a school, and several new businesses. During World War II, the city experienced a period of growth as defense contractors set up operations in the area. This led to an influx of new residents and the construction of new homes and businesses.
In the decades that followed, Duncanville continued to grow and develop. The city is now home to a thriving business community, a number of parks and recreation facilities, and a highly regarded school district. Today, Duncanville is known for its strong sense of community and its commitment to preserving its history while also embracing progress and growth.
