Settlers from Carrollton, Ill., and at least one from Carrollton, Md., built a camp in the area in 1844, but hostilities forced a move north to the present site. The community was established in 1872 as a stop on the MK&T Railroad. Today, Carrollton is a vibrant community that has been named a national "Kid-Friendly City" and "Tree City USA." It also boasts 15 miles of walking and biking trails.
Historic Downtown Carrollton, with a gazebo in town square, is home to antique and craft shops, restaurants and the Plaza Arts Center.
