Hear the story of Southlake through the oral history video Southlake Remembers

Southlake is full of diversity and rich history. From pioneering roots to a sophisticated hometown community, it has grown to be a jewel of North Texas. In Southlake Remembers, an oral history video, Southlake residents, historical families and business-owners share the story of Southlake as seen through the eyes of its people.

Southlake Remembers is a collaborative project led by the City of Southlake in cooperation with the Southlake Historical Society, Carroll Independent School District, Bob Jones Nature Center Organization, Southlake Community Band, Southlake Sister Cities, Southlake Arts Council, and Cooper and Stebbins. Participants range from notable Southlake leaders, longtime residents, local business owners, historical families, and school children. The project was developed by artist Christopher Blay in association with videographer and film editor, Jason Tamplin. Southlake Remembers is now available for viewing online through City of Southlake Video On-Demand. The video will also be included in artist Christopher Blay’s Stories Project, which focuses on communities in north Tarrant County.
