Pantego is a town in Tarrant County, Texas, United States. The population was 2,394 at the 2010 census. It is entirely surrounded by the cities of Arlington and Dalworthington Gardens. It is in the middle of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, a metropolitan area spanning several counties.
Originally incorporated in 1949, the town dissolved in February 1952 and re-incorporated on May 22, 1952.
The earliest Europeans in the area are thought to be the members of the De Soto Expedition under Luis de Moscoso, in 1542. The expedition is thought to have camped near what is now Village Creek.
In 1841, during the time of the Republic of Texas, troops under the command of General Edward H. Tarrant skirmished with local Indians in the area.
Settlement of what would become Tarrant County started in the early 1840s. Early settlers included Colonel Middleton Tate Johnson and Colonel Frederick Forney Foscue. According to local tradition, Colonel Foscue had an Indian friend named Pantego. In 1883, Colonel Foscue donated land for a school. Tradition holds the school was named Pantego in honor of Colonel Foscue’s Indian friend.
