Rowlett, located in Texas, a city in Dallas and Rockwall Counties and is also a part of the eastern suburb of Dallas. The name of the city was said to be taken after the Rowlett Creek, which flows in Lake Hubbard and is considered to be a significant tributary to Trinity River on its eastern fork. The creek was named after a waterway in 1835. In 1880, the first post office was established, and the area was then called Morris after the Postmaster Austin Morris, and later on, it was named as Rowlette. In 1885, the Dallas and Greenville Railway passed through the area, which then connected it to Dallas and Greenville. However, shortly after the railway was opened, the lines were subsequently sold to Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad.
