Business is booming in Killeen (population 84, 488), which has prospered for more than a hundred years since its founding in 1882 by the Santa Fe Railroad to serve as a shipping station for cotton and cattle. Killeen is located in one of the fastest-growing economic corridors in the nation - an hour's drive from Austin, three hours from San Antonio, four from Houson and three form Dallas. Airlines providing service to and from Killeen (40 flights daily) are Atlantic Southeast Airlines, American Eagle and Continental.
The Killeen Industrial Foundation owns and operates a fully developed, 250-acre business park, located on Twin Creek Drive at the Santa Fe Railroad.
Higher education is offered locally through Central Texas College, Tarleton State University-Central Texas and University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Approximately 100 churches in Killeen represent 20+ denominations.
Recreation here is plentiful with 31 parks, two swimming pools, 32 lighted tennis courts and a municipal golf course. Stillhouse Hollow Lake and Belton Lake are less than a 20-minute drive away.
