Keller is blessed with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, an excellent school system, a wide variety of shopping and dining destinations and award-winning city facilities and programs.
In the early 1850s, settlers established Keller and the town became a stop on the Texas and Pacific Railway. The Texas and Pacific Railway Company (known as the T&P) was created by federal charter in 1871 with the purpose of building a southern Transcontinental railroad between Marshall, Texas and San Diego, California.
