2.6
Rowlett is a city in Dallas and Rockwall counties in the U.S. state of Texas, and a northeastern suburb of Dallas. The population was 56,199 as of the 2010 census. It is a growing, upscale bedroom community in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, located on Lake Ray Hubbard.HistoryRowlett 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 Missouri–Kansas–Texas Railroad. Shortly after its opening, the line was formally sold to the MKT.
