By 1885, Carrollon had flour mills, cotton gins, two churches, a school, and a population of 150. A gravel industry that began in Carrollton in 1912 transformed the city, by the late 1940s, to a "grain and gravel" town.

After World War II the city grew rapidly, and it grew to 4,242 in 1960 and 13,855 in 1970. As a suburb of Dallas, in 2006 named to America's "Top 100 Places to Live" by Relocate America. In 2008 it was named by Money magazine the 15th best place to live among small cities.
