Crowley was incorporated in 1951, a little more than a hundred years after pioneers began farming the area around Deer Creek. The settlement moved a mile or so west to the site of present day downtown Crowley when the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad built pens and laid tracks there. The community was named for S.H. Crowley, who was the master of transportation for the railroad.
Crowley sits at the crossroads of Farm Roads 1187 and 731, two miles west of Interstate 35W, and 15 miles south of downtown Fort Worth. It is home to roughly 9,400 residents. Although most of the city sits within Tarrant County, a very small portion is in Johnson County.
The city hosts an annual Easter Egg Hunt, Fireworks Display, Halloween Hayride, and Christmas Parade. Nearby colleges and universities include Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth Tarrant County College, Texas Christian University, Fort Worth Texas Wesleyan University, Fort Worth Univ. of North Texas Health Science Center, and Fort Worth University of Texas at Arlington.
The Crowley Independent School District extends north into Fort Worth. Several schools are in the Fort Worth city limits, including North Crowley High School, Crowley Middle School, and several elementary schools. Crowley High School, H.F. Stevens Middle School, and the rest of the elementary schools are in Crowley city limits.
According to the 2000 census, median household income is $46,765 and median house value is $70,500.
