Up until 1914 the city of Grapevine was known as Grapevine Prairie because of the mustang grapes that grow in the area. The city is home to the Grapevine High School, which has been named both a Blue Ribbon School and a New American High School, and whose football team takes its name, Mustangs, after the native fruit. As with many of the cities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the population of Grapevine grew dramatically after the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was opened in the 1970s. Indeed, Grapevine may have experienced more dramatic growth than the other cities in the region because most of the airport lays within Grapevine’s city limits.

In a recently settled lawsuit, a former Grapevine firefighter sued the city for disability discrimination. The firefighter contended that the city discriminated against him by not finding him a job he was able to perform after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Although the attorneys for Grapevine contended that the city was actively looking for a new job for the firefighter when he quit, and that multiple sclerosis was not severe enough to be covered by the state law against disability discrimination, they settled the matter for $55,000.
