Our Keller, Hurst, and Southlake offices proudly serve the Coppell area. Although Coppell is thought of as a relatively young city (incorporated in 1955), its roots can be traced back to the early 1880's.
As the town developed, it went through several name changes. In 1890 – it became "Coppell", probably after George Coppell, who was a prominent New York businessman closely associated with many railroads. So influential was the railroad in those days that the name of the train stop became the name of the town, and in 1892, Gibbs officially changed the name of its post office and town to Coppell.â€¨Transportation has played a key role in the history of the City. The Cotton Belt Railroad (part of the St. Louis and Southwestern Texas Railroad) established the "Gibbs Station" in the community in 1889, providing needed transportation for the area's many farms. The railroad was the major form of transportation into the community until the 1920's, when paved roads and automobiles became more prevalent in the area.
By 1893, Coppell had four stores, a lumber yard, blacksmith shop, cotton gin, and school. In 1908, a second school building was built alongside the original, just west of old downtown Coppell. In 1909, a newspaper, The Coppell Informer, served Coppell. In 1911, the community and Dallas County built a public well and watering trough in the center of town.â€¨
By the 1930's Coppell had a population of slightly over 400, almost entirely farmers and their families.â€¨â€¨One of Coppell's selling points is its close proximity to DF/W International Airport. Part of D/FW's property is located within Coppell's city limits.
