Once part of the Peters' Colony, this city is 25 miles from both Dallas and Fort Worth. It bills itself as the "Cement Capital of Texas" and the "Steel Capital of Texas" because of the number of such manufacturers in the area. Local lore holds that the town got its name from a railroad engineer who noted the area looked like his homeland--the Lothian Valley in Scotland--while surveying a route in the 1880s.
