Pioneer W.S. Peters brought the first settlers to North Richland Hills in 1848. Dairy farms flourished here before World War II, and the city was incorporated in 1953. As with most towns in the metroplex, the city has grown significantly in recent years, making it the third largest in Tarrant County in the 2010 Census. North Richland Hills is home to Tarrant County College Northeast Campus, the University of Dallas Tarrant County Campus and ATI Career Training Center.
