This city's origins date back to the Republic of Texas, when the area was settled as part of Peters' Colony as early as 1846. The village, named for Postmaster Addison Robertson, was established when the St. Louis Southwestern Railroad arrived in the 1880s. Today, this city—15 minutes north of Dallas—offers abundant opportunities for shopping, lodging and dining.
The Addison Arts and Events District, north of Belt Line Road between Addison Road and Quorum Drive, features a water garden and venues that host events throughout the year. Events include Taste Addison in May, Addison Kaboom Town! in July and Oktoberfest in September.
