Welcome to Ennis, Texas



The City of Ennis is located on Interstate Highway 45 just 30 minutes south of downtown Dallas.

Ennis is built on "Texas Tradition"... the wild west, railroading and bluebonnets... and we are so much more.

Ennis is the preferred residential and business development site in the Southern Tier of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and for good reason....


Ennis boasts award winning public schools - with all elementary and secondary schools meeting all 2013 Texas Education Agency (TEA) accountability standards.


The City of Ennis is an excellent place to find employment. With a commitment to continued economic development, the City of Ennis has recruited over $535 million in industrial development projects and created over 2,098 new jobs in the last ten years.


Downtown Ennis is a vibrant area with numerous shops, boutiques and eateries lining the antique red brick streets of this beautiful National Register Historic District.

If you are looking for outdoor activities, the City of Ennis has over 175 acres of city parks, three lakes and fourteen tennis courts.

Access to ... Everything!!!

Ennis is just 30 short minutes from a true "World Class" commercial, civic and cultural center (the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex). Our location allows superb access to employment, shopping and unsurpassed entertainment including professional sports (National Football League, Major Leaque Baseball, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League) and the arts (symphony, opera and museum offerings that are unparalleled).

We invite you to come and see why Ennis is a great fit for you!
