History

The earliest white settlement in what is now Lewisville occurred in the 1840s. Basdeal Lewis purchased the land around which Lewisville would be formed and named the town after himself.


Growth was very slow during the 19th century, with population rising to only about 500 by 1900. The settlement did boast several agricuture-related industries, including a grist mill, a cotton gin, and a livery stable and feed mill. In 1885 the building currently housing the Greater Lewisville Community Theater was constructed on the city's principal thoroughfare, Main Street. It remains Lewisville's oldest standing structure.
