Native Peoples Law Lawyers In Flower Mound Texas

Flower Mound is a town in Denton and Tarrant counties in the U.S. state of Texas. Its population was 50,702 at the 2000 census, and the U.S. Census Bureau 2007 population estimate was 68,337. The town derives its name from the prominent 12.5-acre mound located in the southern portion of the town which is covered by wild flowers. The most widely accepted explanation for the mound is that it was a sacred ceremonial ground of Wichita Indians in the early 1800s. Though surrounded by commercial and residential development, the mound is privately owned so as to be protected from further development. Flower Mound has a suburban mid-size city atmosphere with easy access to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It refuses to be referred to as a "city" despite its recent growth; it bills itself as the "Town of Flower Mound" with a "Town Hall" and a "Town Council".
