History: In the mid-1800s, the area that is now Dallas was purchased with the intention of building a trading post, but instead the property was used to build a permanent settlement. By 1871, Dallas had become officially recognized as a city. Modern-day Dallas, along with surrounding cities, are growing at a high rate, gaining more residents in recent years than any other metro area in the nation.
