I’ve always had some questions on why Keller didn’t annex the land west of 377, and I was always told the City Fathers didn’t want to fix Golden Triangle. Well, this presentation was sent to us a couple of weeks ago and it goes into great detail the history of why the borders of Keller are where they are. Thanks to Mr. Dumas for the time and energy he spent putting this together.
From the email:
My name is Mark Dumas. My father, Allen Dumas, still lives on the 3-acres where I was born in 1968. He was part of City Council during a critical time of Keller’s development in the late 60′s. I have heard numerous stories from him about this period, and decided to study the annexation aspect in particular. The attached slide set is a result of several years of research. It is an interesting story on how Keller was shaped, and I hope you will enjoy the historical aspect.
My father has never cared for recognition, but I know he is proud of what he did during this period. He is almost 80 now, and I want to share with the current City Council what I have found. I hope you have a few minutes to read through the slides (most are pictures).
