Irving was established in 1902 by J.O. Schulze and Otis Brown as a rail link between Dallas and Fort Worth. Local historians think the city was named for author Washington Irving. The thriving commercial and residential city is on the western edge of Dallas and the eastern boundary of DFW International Airport. It's home to North Lake College and the University of Dallas.
A herd of five marble cows, sculpted by Harold Clayton, makes an unusual setting along Texas 114 near Rochelle Road.
