In 1854, Flower Mound Presbyterian Church was founded by the Reverend Matthew B. Donald. During the 1860’s, The Chisholm Trail crossed through Flower Mound along the I-35W corridor. The Town of Flower Mound incorporated to avoid being annexed by the City of Irving. The Town of Flower Mound derived its name from a prominent 12.5-acre mound – once covered with bluestem grasses and a variety of indigenous flowers – that rises 650 feet above sea level and stands 50 feet above the surrounding countryside.
