Saginaw’s roots go back to the 1880s when it was the town where three then-major rail lines converged: the Chicago, Rock Island and Gulf. Today, Saginaw is one of the fastest growing communities in North Texas. Located just north of Loop 820 North at Business 287, Saginaw includes the communities of Blue Mound, Saginaw and Lake Country Estates, and is only minutes from Alliance Airport, I-35, and downtown Fort Worth.
Students attend school in the acclaimed Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District. All schools within the district are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and students consistently score well above average on standardized tests. The Northwest campus of Tarrant County Junior College is here, too. A recently constructed city library offers numerous programs, and the city’s Senior Center and Community Center host full calendars of activities. Saginaw is home to seven city parks, some of which include playground equipment for the physically challenged. Recreational opportunities include a new recreation center, tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, jogging trails, picnic areas and a community center. Saginaw celebrates its railroad and milling heritage with the annual Train & Grain Festival each October, including food, entertainment, crafts, games and educational displays.
