Most people have heard of the Denton County suburb, but not many have been up to the actual “Flower Mound” where the city got its name.

Legend goes, Native Americans considered the Mound a sacred site and buried their dead there. Located at the crossroads of FM 3040 and FM 2499, early Anglo settlers used it as meeting place.
