Royse City is a city in Rockwall County in the U.S. state of Texas. It also extends into Collin and Hunt Counties. Royse City was settled in 1885, when the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway came through the area. The town is named after G. B. Royse, who platted the town and sold the first lots.
Royse City, like the rest of Rockwall County, has experienced phenomenal growth in recent years. This is due to the rapid growth of the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex and to its location on Interstate 30 between Rockwall and Greenville. It has always preserved its stable small country town status thanks to its close proximity to Garland and Dallas.
The city is served by the Royse City Independent School District.
