Welcome to Addison

Addison is a city in Dallas County, Texas, and is a northern suburb of Dallas. The population was 14,166 at the 2000 census. The city calls itself the Town of Addison but it is incorporated as a city. The land occupied by Addison was settled as early as 1846 when Preston Witt built a house near White Rock Creek. In 1902 the community named itself Addison, after Addison Robertson, who served as postmaster from 1908 to 1916. Today, Addison is the result of explosive growth of business since the 1980s. Though Addison has only 14,166 residents, daytime population is estimated at over 100,000. With more than 180 restaurants, there is a restaurant for every 79 Addison residents. Addison has 22 hotels, featuring a total of at least 4,000 hotel rooms and meeting facilities. Addison Airport consumes roughly half of the city's 11.5 square kilometers (4.4 square miles), and is one of the busiest general aviation airports in the nation. Major corporate headquarters in Addison include Dresser, Mary Kay Cosmetics, and Pizza Hut.
