History in a Pecan Shell

Named after the Peters' Colony, this Lewisville suburb is a 3,000 acre residential neighborhood with nothing left of the early history. In 1852 this was the site of the Hedgcoxe War. It's present incarnation was formed in 1973.

The Colony is one of four communities in Texas prefaced with "the." The Grove (ghost town), The Woodlands (residential and business community), and The Flat (AKA Fort Griffin, ghost town.)
