A Picturesque Locale on DFW’s Eastern Edge
Named for Forney’s main road – which eventually became U.S. 80 – Overland Grove is situated on Farm-to-Market Road 548 (Walnut Lane) in the city of Forney halfway between U.S. 80 and Interstate 20. Located due east of downtown Dallas, the community is easily accessible with help from major highways and interstates.
Historic Downtown Forney
The Historic Downtown Forney, located just minutes from Overland Grove, provides a unique combination of restaurants, boutiques, professional services, and other small businesses. Eno’s Pizza Tavern, Mama’s Daughter’s Diner, Latham Bakery, Crumbzz, Touch Up Salon, the Flower Basket, Groovy’s, and many others. Forney Live brings regular concerts to historic homes in the downtown district; third Thursdays at the Spellman Museum bring after-hour events and lectures – the excitement of Downtown Forney is growing among businesses, entrepreneurs, residents, and real estate developers.
Forney Artisan Market
The Forney Downtown Business Association partners with the Forney Arts Council to sponsor and bring the Downtown Forney: Artisan & Farmers Market to downtown semimonthly. The Artisan & Farmers Market features handcrafted artisan made gifts and fresh locally ground products. Market days are every second Saturday, April – November from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
