Elisha Adam Euless, a pioneer from Tennessee, built a home and cotton gin in the area in 1881. The settlement that grew around his gin was named for him. Today, the city is a thriving community on the boundary of DFW International Airport.

The Arbor Daze Festival each April promotes and celebrates the planting of trees throughout the city. www.arbordaze.org.
