According to Dallas developer Warren Clark, there was no residential housing north of Carrollton’s Belt Line Road in the late 1960’s. When he purchased a tract of land that included a country farmhouse, spring-fed creek, and riding stables from former Dallas mayor Ray Hubbard and his family, he decided to develop a residential community in the area. Clark appropriately named his new housing addition “Country Place.” Country Place Elementary, which is located in the Country Place housing addition, was built in 1975. A major renovation project occurred in 2009, which included a new cafeteria as well as a new school entrance. The construction project was completed for the 2009-2010 school year.
