History in a Pecan Shell

Reports state that the area may have been settled prior to to the arrival of the railroad in 1883. The railroad in this case was the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe.

A post office was granted in 1887 and the convoluted source of the name is said to be after the railroad contractor’s hometown in Michigan.

In there was a one-teacher school where twenty-one students enrolled in 1903 when the population was a mere sixty-seven residents. It dropped to just fifty in 1915 and even as late as the mid 1930s, Haslet only counted sixty-nine people.

War-related industries in the Fort Worth area propelled the population to 175 by the late 1940s. It remained at that level through the 1950s and by the mid 1960s, Haslet had two hundred and fifty residents.

The 1990 Census counted nearly 800 people residing in Haslet and the 2000 Census counted 1,134.
