Haslet Public Library


Haslet Public Library features photographs of farms, schools, and churches that track the development of Haslet, Texas. The area was settled around 1883, when the tracks of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway were extended through the area. The community was named for the Michigan hometown of the railroad's contractor. In 1896 the community had a school with twenty-one students and one teacher. During the 1920s Haslet had three grocery stores as well as a hardware store, dry goods store, and cotton gin.
