The Colony

Wikipedia says:

The Colony is located inside the original Peters Colony lands, on the site of the Hedgcoxe War. The Colony did not exist before 1969, when home developers Fox and Jacobs (owned by Centex) purchased most of the land located around State Highway 121 and Farm to Market Road 423. They planned the development of a new “dream city” modeled after the city of Dallas, consisting primarily of single-family homes grouped as a “colony.”
