PLEASANT GLADE, TEXAS (Tarrant County). Pleasant Glade, also known as Glade, was located ten miles northeast of Fort Worth in northeastern Tarrant County. Pleasant Glade, Pleasant Run, and Colleyville were organized in the area in the 1880s. Pleasant Glade had a church and a school. French horticulturist Anthelm Bidault planted an orchard near the community in the 1890s. Pleasant Glade was bypassed by the railroads and highway construction and disappeared sometime after 1940.
