Otobots auto repair proudly serves the thriving community of Mesquite, TX with industry certified technicians. The city was founded on March 14, 1878, on land along the Texas & Pacific Railroad outside of Dallas. The railroad, which ran from Dallas to Shreveport, Louisiana, began stopping at the newly created town shortly thereafter, and the city began to grow around the railroad. The city was officially incorporated on December 3, 1887.
Mesquite prospered through the late 19th century and early 20th century as a farming community growing cotton, hay, corn and sugar and using the railroad to ship raw goods. The town remained predominantly agrarian until after World War II when the suburban boom also took root in Mesquite. The city’s population rapidly grew from 1,696 in the 1950 census to 27,526 in 1960 and 55,131 in 1970.
Notable people from Mesquite include Dave Abruzzese (musician), Tarell Brown (NFL), John D. Carmack (game programmer), Ray Cunningham (MLB), and Taylor Lipsett (paralympic gold medalist).
