Little Elm Real Estate Information

Defying its name, Little Elm, Texas, is one of the fastest growing cities in the state. It is located on more than 14 square miles in Denton County, and its population has grown by an astounding nearly 500 percent between 2000 and 2007, from just over 3,500 to nearly 22,000. The area has become popular because of the low cost of residential properties in the area, particularly as real estate prices have climbed in nearby Frisco and The Colony.

The cities of The Peters Colony and Little Elm were chartered in 1841, and Little Elm incorporated in June 1966. The community is popular because of its proximity to Lake Lewisville, and Little Elm is one of the few areas that has free boat ramp access points on the lake. More than 20 miles of Little Elm's corporate city limit's are on the shores of Lewisville Lake.

Children living in the city are assigned mostly to the growing Little Elm Independent School District, though some areas of the city also are zoned to the Frisco Independent School District. Little Elm's schools include five elementary schools, two intermediate schools, a junior high and a high school, plus a pre-kindergarten academy. Though no colleges are physically located in Little Elm, Collin County Community College, Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas all are just within minutes.

Events held here throughout the year include the Little Elm Autumn Festival, the "Rock the Doc" 5K Run and 1 Mile Run/Walk, the Anything Floats Derby, a BBQ Cook-Off and the Clean & Green Bi-Annual Clean-up Event. The city maintains five public parks and its departments offer a range of recreational and athletic programs and events for residents. Media and history selections and archives can be accessed at the Little Elm Public Library.
