Living in Forney
A quick drive east from downtown Dallas on US-80 will bring you to Forney, a small American town with plenty of charm. Forney embraces its Southern roots laid by settlers and pioneers, but also looks towards the future by investing in the community and its residents.
The broad expanse of prairie and grassland was settled in the late 1800s. Originally named Brooklyn after the networks of springs that flowed into a brook, citizens discovered that a Brooklyn already existed in another area further southeast. The area was then renamed Forney, after John Wien Forney, civil engineer, journalist, politician, and prominent member of the community. Settlers trickled into Forney over the years, increasing the population to more than 3,000 by 1960. The last recorded population in 2010 was nearly 15,000.
Rich History and Community in Forney
Forney makes caring for the community a priority. There are plenty of community parks and recreation facilities that Forney works to maintain and improve. Families can enjoy spaces like Forney Community Park, where residents can play sports, hike or bike on trails, use the splash pad, or enjoy a special city event. Special events take place year-round at Forney Community Park, like BBQ cookoffs, concerts, free movies, and trick-or-treating on the trails. After a long day at the park, Forney residents can whet their appetites at one of many local restaurants. Oscar Delta Texas Kitchen off US-80 serves quick and delicious comfort food, while Doe Belly’s up the road has Cajun-Creole dishes like po’ boys and fried catfish.
Are your clients antiques and history lovers? Forney was dubbed the “Antique Capital of Texas” in the late 1980s by Texas legislature, thanks to the stretch of antiques stores and warehouses along US-80. Residents and visitors can browse places like Caspar & Gerard’s Antiques, Little Reds Antiques, Deridder Antiques, and more for hidden gems. To learn more about the community’s background, Spellman Museum of Forney History is worth a look. Like many businesses and landmarks in Forney, it’s located off US-80, close to amenities like Impact Fitness, Brookshire’s, the post office, and Dollar General.
Parents who want convenient amenities will appreciate Forney’s city layout. Many of Forney’s highly rated schools are close to US-80, making running errands a breeze. Forney Independent School District has several elementary schools to choose from, two middle schools, and two high schools. Most schools in the district are located near neighborhood parks, churches, grocery stores, and pediatricians’ offices.
Many new homes are being built in Forney to keep up with its expansion and influx of new residents. Take your clients on a tour of a new community in Forney — it’s sure to be their new favorite!
