Cowboys in Irving.

Irving was founded in 1903 by J.O. "Otto" Schulze and Otis Brown. It is believed literary author Washington Irving
Washington Irving
was a favorite of Netta Barcus Brown, and consequently the name of the town site, Irving, was chosen. Irving began in 1889 as an area called Gorbit, and in 1894 the name changed to Kit.[10] Irving was incorporated April 14, 1914, with Otis Brown as the first mayor. By the late nineteenth century the Irving area was the site of churches, two cotton gins, a blacksmith shop and a general store. The Irving district public school system dates to the 1909 establishment of Kit and Lively schools. Population growth was slow and sometimes halting, with only 357 residents in 1925, but a significant increase began in the 1930s. By the early 1960s the city had a population of approximately 45,000. A number of manufacturing plants operated in Irving, along with transportation, retail and financial businesses. The University of Dallas
Dallas
in Irving opened in 1956, and Texas Stadium
Texas Stadium
was completed in 1971 as the home field of the Dallas
Dallas
Cowboys. Delta Air Lines Flight 191

crashed in Irving on August 2, 1985.[11] Irving's population reached 155,037 in 1990 and the United States Census
Census
estimated 236,607 residents in 2016, a 3.5 percent population increase over 2013 census estimates.[9] Joseph Rice recorded the history of Irving in his 1989 book, Irving: A Texas
Texas
Odyssey (Northridge, California: Windsor Publications ISBN 978-0-89781-300-6). Rice explored Irving's past and culture in his treatment of the city. Geography[edit]

Irving serves as the headquarters city for two college athletics conferences: the Big 12 Conference[50] and Conference USA.[51] Government and infrastructure[edit] Local government[edit] Prior to the November 2008 elections, Irving banned the sale of alcoholic beverages in stores, making it the largest in population dry suburb in North Texas. In 2004 the pro-alcohol measure failed with 63% of voters opposing the measure. In 2006, 52% voted against the measure. On the third attempt, with heavy monetary backing by retailers, voters narrowly voted in favor of the measure in 2008.[52] People in favor of changing Irving's liquor laws saw the interest in the 2008 United States
United States
Presidential Election as a catalyst for changing the laws in their favor.[53] In 2009 Irving had a city council that was entirely at-large. While Irving has a large population of racial minorities, the entire city council and the mayor's office, was entirely non-Hispanic White. Manny Benavidez, a resident of Irving, filed a lawsuit against the city in federal court in November 2007, saying that the voting system was not in compliance with the 1965 Voting Rights Act. On July 15, 2009, a federal judge ruled that Irving is required to create a new electoral system so that racial minority representatives may be voted into office.[54] In 2010 elections, which included one at-large seat and two district-seats, three new council members were elected, replacing two incumbents and adding a newly created seat. Among the three new council members were two minority council members.[55][56]
