Keller is convenient to Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties, as well as Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Even though Keller started as an agricultural town, it has grown significantly and attracts many different types of home buyers. Keller offers a variety of home styles and price ranges. The town has become a popular choice for buyers who want the convenience of a Mid-Cities location as well as the peace and serenity of country life.
The Texas and Pacific Railway between Fort Worth and Texarkana was completed in June 1881, and the first train ran on this track on May 9, 1881, which ran parallel with parts of the old Chisom cattle drive trail. With the advent of rail service, new villages were established all along the line. The Keller of today was one of them. The name of the town was changed from Athol to Keller, honoring John C. Keller, a foreman on the railroad.
The 1980 Census calculated Keller's population at 4,555; today, nearly 45,000 residents call Keller home.
