In 1843, Sam Houston met with 10 Indian tribes which resulted in a signing of a treaty of friendship, peace, and commerce. This opened up the area for settlement by pioneers and homesteaders to build a foundation for a city to last for generations to come. The area is named Grapevine because it was located on the Grape Vine Prairie with the region being blanketed by wild mustang grapes. That same spirit still thrives in Grapevine, friendship, peace, and commerce.
