Long Description:
The City of Krugerville website says this about their city: (visit link)

In 1964, after several years of building houses in the Denton area, Mr. L. H. Kruger purchased 328 acres right off of Hwy 377, just south of Aubrey. His plan was to improve the mostly wooded area, and build houses on 1-acre lots.

As L.H. put his plan into motion, the development quickly became a community. Families who were seeking the quiet country life realized the beauty of the area and the community grew as word spread. The original water system, Kruger Waterworks, was expanded twice to keep up with the booming growth.

The community of Krugerville officially incorporated to form the City of Krugerville in 1973. Since then, it has expanded well beyond L.H. Kruger’s original plan. Krugerville has grown into one of the most beautiful communities in the area, offering a perfect blend between the classic older neighborhood, affectionately know as “Old Krugerville” and new home sites, including “The Woodlands” and “Fairview Farms,” which feature over-sized lots with beautiful trees.

The “ol’ timers” still recognize the place, since so much of the original look-and-feel still exists. In fact, you can still see L.H. Kruger and his wife Willie Mae out and about in “Old Krugerville.” A lot of improvements have taken place since his time as Mayor back in the early 1970’s, but L.H. still enjoys the beauty that initially drew him to this area over 40 years ago.

The City is growing now as quickly as it was when L.H. started building the first houses. Families today are still recognizing the beauty of the area, the community full of caring people and the peaceful rural setting. The City also offers an exceptional school system, low taxes, safe neighborhoods and convenient access to the larger surrounding cities.

Since the very beginning the City Council has, and still strives to retain the rural atmosphere while constantly working to enhance the City’s quality and the residents’ way of life.
