Benbrook, as a community, is one of the oldest in Tarrant County, but as an incorporated city, it is one of the youngest. Prior to the arrival of settlers, large herds of buffalo and members of the Wichita, Caddo, Comanche and Lipan Apache Indian tribes roamed the Benbrook area. Archeologists estimate that the area has been inhabited for at least 11,000 years. In 1842, The Republic of Texas granted a contract to attract 250 Families per year to Benbrook (then called Miranda area) by offering Free Land, Cabin, Seed, and Musket balls. The Colony settled along Mary’s Creek. James M. Benbrook, a sergeant with the 40th Illinois Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War was discharged in 1862 after being wounded. Following the war, Benbrook and his family traveled south settling in Miranda in November 1876. That same year, on behalf of the community, Benbrook petitioned for the Texas & Pacific Railroad to place a station along Mary’s Creek near Miranda. The line was completed in 1880 and the station was named Benbrook Station. Eventually, people began associating the name of the station with the community. More About Benbrook >
