Mesquite history

The city was created on May 22, 1873 by A.R. Alcott, a Texas & Pacific Railroad engineer, who purchased land along the Texas & Pacific line outside of Dallas. The railroad, which ran from Dallas to Shreveport, began stopping at the newly-created town shortly thereafter and the city began to grow around the railroad. The city was officially incorporated on December 3, 1887.

Mesquite prospered in the late 19th to the early 20th century and became a growing farming community, growing cotton, hay, corn and sugar and using the railroad line to ship the raw goods. The town remained predominantly agrarian until after World War II, when the boom in suburbs also took root in Mesquite as new subdivisions were created. The population exploded, growing from 1,696 in the 1950 census to 27,526 in 1960 and 55,131 in 1970.

In 1958, the Mesquite Championship Rodeo was established and in 1959, Big Town Mall was constructed, the first enclosed mall in the Southwest.

By 1970, LBJ Freeway was constructed, connecting Mesquite to its neighbors, Garland to the north and Balch Springs to the south. Also in the 1970s, Town East Mall was constructed. Its associated traffic and shops would continue to grow the town. By the 1990 census, the town had grown to 101,484 people, nearly twice the population twenty years earlier.

In 1986, the Mesquite Arena (now named Resistol Arena) opened its doors for the Mesquite Championship Rodeo. By 1998, the facility was expanded to include a Convention Center, Exhibition Hall and a Hampton Inn & Suites.
