Edgecliff is an incorporated residential community on Farm Road 731 just south of the city limits of Fort Worth in south central Tarrant County. The establishment nearby of Carswell Air Force Base in the 1940s and the manufacturing plants of defense contractor General Dynamics in the 1950s boosted the community's development. The population remained low until the 1950s, when it increased to 500; in the late 1980s it was reported at more than 3,000. In 1990 the population was 2,715 and in 2000 it was 2,550.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
