About the book:
Coppell history is rooted in peace and community. In 1843, Sam Houston met with 10 native tribes along Grapevine Springs Creek to negotiate an accord to end fighting and allow trade and settlement in the area. When Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened in 1974, Coppell transformed from a farming hamlet into a thriving town with expanding economic opportunity. Through firsthand accounts with longtime residents and meticulous research, the authors unfold the contemplative story of a complex and historic community.
