Ellis County was established 13 years after Richard Ellis presided as president of the Convention of 1836 at which the Texas Declaration of Independence was adopted and signed. It has since grown to become home to the more than 100,000 residents of its multiple cities, townships, and unincorporated areas.
As part of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, several major highways go through Ellis County, including Interstate 35E, Interstate 45, U.S. Route 67, U.S. Route 77, U.S. Route 287, and Texas State Highway 34. This means that several people are arrested annually for driving while intoxicated (DWI).
