|With its unique location just north of Greater Fort Worth and its easy access to the DFW Airport, Haslet provides a pleasant residential setting with a rural atmosphere and convenient connectivity to amenities and jobs throughout the Metroplex. Haslet has a five year old library and a formidable park system for a city of only 1500. Our property tax rate of only 30 cents per $100 is one of the lowest in the Metroplex, making Haslet a great place to settle and raise a family. Our award winning Northwest Independent School District is one of the very best in the state and its double digit growth rate is testimony to the quality and many successes of its programs. The City is committed to provide the very best services to its residents as evidenced in its low crime rate and its dedicated Volunteer Fire Department. Our Haslet Sports Association presents an impressive array of organized sports activities for our youngsters and also attracts numerous children from neighboring communities. Haslet citizens are very active in civic affairs and are providing the vision to lead us into the future.
The four square block area in Old Town Haslet is being groomed for future development as a dining and shopping destination for the entire area. Future construction of SH 170 just to the north of Old Town will provide a quick and easy way to access this attraction.
On the doorstep of the BNSF Intermodal Rail Facility and Alliance Airport, Haslet is poised to maximize these opportunities by aggressively pursuing partners who want to take advantage of our prime location and low tax rates. There are ongoing discussions with several major developers in the area to provide the necessary infrastructure to attract and maintain new clients. With a build out of only 20% of available sites, Haslet is positioning itself to attract new corporations and businesses.

|Haslet is on Farm Road 156 some sixteen miles northwest of Fort Worth in extreme north central Tarrant County. The area was settled around 1880, but it is likely that no distinct community formed until 1883, when the tracks of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway were extended through the area. A post office opened there in 1887. The community was named for the Michigan hometown of the railroad's contractor. In 1896 the community had a school with twenty-one students and one teacher. Ten years later the Haslet school had twenty-five students. Haslet's population was sixty-seven in 1903 and fifty in 1915. During the 1920s Haslet had three grocery stores as well as a hardware store, dry goods store, and cotton gin. It reported a population of sixty-nine in the mid-1930s. The availability of war-related employment in Fort Worth probably contributed to the growth of Haslet's population to 175 by the late 1940s. It maintained this population through the 1950s, and in the mid-1960s, by which point it had incorporated, Haslet had a population of 250 and seven businesses. In 1976 it had 276 residents and five businesses.
|By the 1990's, Haslet had become a commuter community for Fort Worth with approximately 795 residents and some twelve businesses. Today, Haslet is a thriving city that continues to grow.
