History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Cockrell Hill was established by the pioneer Brentwood Allen Cockrell and his son, Woodrow. They established the town as a way of making a living, and ran it like a business, a tradition which continues today, and is evident in the style of governance in the immediate region. In May 2006, Councilman Luis D. Carrera defeated C. P. Slayton and John Mendiola defeated Richard Hall and joined Silvia Ulloa, Richard Perez and Sammy Rodriquez to become the first all-Hispanic City Council in North Texas.

A statue of "Ol' Brent" stands in the city hall rotunda.

The "Festival of Brent" is held each year to commemorate the founding.
