Below is some general information about Rowlett:
Rowlett is a city in Dallas and Rockwall counties in the U.S. state of Texas, and a suburb of Dallas. The population was 56,199 as of the 2010 census. It is a quiet, upscale bedroom community in the DallasÐFort Worth metroplex, located on Lake Ray Hubbard.
Rowlett derives its name from Rowlett Creek, which flows into Lake Ray Hubbard and is a major tributary of the east fork of the Trinity River. The creek in turn was named for a waterway running through the property of Daniel Rowlett who moved from Kentucky to Bonham, Texas, in 1835. Daniel, who was a member of the Smoot-Rowlett political family, had no direct dealings with the town that now bears his name. The first post office opened on April 5, 1880, and it was called Morris after Postmaster Austin Morris. The town was later renamed Rowlett. The Dallas and Greenville Railway passed through the town in 1886, connecting Dallas with Greenville, Texas, and the MissouriÐKansasÐTexas Railroad. Shortly after its opening, the line was formally sold to the MKT.
The town incorporated in 1952 when its population was 250. In the 1960s the town languished as Interstate 30 bypassed Rowlett. The town has had a building boom since the completion of Lake Ray Hubbard in 1971 Ð growing to 1,600 by 1973; 10,573 by 1989; 23,260 by 1990; and 44,503 by 2000. Rowlett gained international notoriety in 1996 when local resident Darlie Routier was convicted of murdering her children as they slept. In 2003 the town made an unsuccessful formal proposal to get the Dallas Cowboys to move to a 1,000-acre 5-Point Park on the banks of Lake Ray Hubbard when the lease for Texas Stadium expires. In 2013 the City Council is currently in a dispute with the Metroplex Atheists regarding their invocations.
