Coppell is located in northwest Dallas County, approximately 22 miles northwest of downtown Dallas and 27 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Coppell's proximity to DFW International Airport, both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers, and downtown Dallas is likely to make Coppell residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas. In addition to a growing number of homes, the city also became a hub for commerce with transportation centers and warehouses on the west and east sides of Coppell springing up. All of these commercial enterprises were gearing up to take advantage of the nearby airport.

Coppell, Texas was first settled by French and German settlers back in the 1840s. The area was called Gibbs Station back then. Later the city was renamed in 1890 to Coppell, in honor of George A Coppell a local engineer who was responsible for bringing the railroad to city. Later in 1955, the community was formally incorporated via a ballot which passed 41 to 1. The opening of the nearby Dallas/Fort Worth International airport later in 1974 lead to the city rapidly transforming from what was a tiny village back then to a posh, upper-middle-class suburb. The transformation was in particular accelerated through the 1980s and the 1990s. By the year 2000, almost all the zone land was fully developed, and the population had grown from a few hundred back in the 80s to over 35,000.
