Euless is situated in the state of Texas and a city in Tarrant County. It is also a suburb of Dallas and Fort Worth, and it is considered as a part of the Mid-Cities that is in the region between Dallas and Fort Worth. The city was named after the resident Elisha Adam Euless who was a native of Tennessee but moved to Texas in 1867 and then later bought about 170 acres of the land in the site that is the present location of North Main St. and West Euless Boulevard. Euless was developed as a cotton gin and was a community center that started on his property and quickly became a prominent figure in the site along with the other settlers. In 1892 and 1894, he was then elected as a county sheriff and eventually retired. When the area developed around his property, the locals decided to name the city in his honor.
