Tales of The Mound There are almost as many legends interpretations and stories often contradictory concerning The Mound as there are bluebonnets in Texas. There are very few unchallenged facts about The Mound. The Town of Flower Mound derived its name from it it rises 650 feet above sea level and it stands 50 feet above the surrounding countryside. Texas' eminent historian the late A.C. Greene believed the hill received its name in the 1840s because of an unusual amount of wild flowers that grew on it. This area was part of the great American Black Land Prairie that ran from Canada to the Rio Grande and from the Rockies to the Mississippi. Only 1000 acres remain of the original 20 million known as the Tall Grass Prairie. Because early pioneer settlers used The Mound as a hay meadow and never plowed the wild flowers were conspicuously abundant in wet springs. However wildflowers and native prairie grasses flourish throughout the year. The non-profit Mound Foundation has identified more than 175 species of wild flowers. Past and Present After experiencing unprecedented residential growth in the 1990s the Town now actively promotes a burgeoning commercial development scene centered around the Lakeside Business District located on the North Shore of Lake Grapevine and the Denton Creek District located in the growing I-35 West corridor.
