Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Glen Rose and Las Colinas: Photo 8
By 1972, a year before DFW opened, Ben Carpenter controlled 12,000 acres on which he intended to build. One of the early steps was the replacement of the name Hackberry with the more mellifluous Las Colinas. (Where the hills are, exactly, is a question best asked of the real-estate gurus who regularly bring you Apple Creek, Rolling Meadows, and Shadow Valley.)
Next, in 1974, came the replacement of Hackberry Creek with Lake Carolyn, flanked with docks for Venetian water taxis and, on the far side, an elevated people-mover. "I used to chop hay right there on that very land," said Gilbert Colwell in 1987.
