Benbrook is one of the oldest communities in Tarrant County, but also one of the youngest as an incorporated city. It was inhabited thousands of years ago by local tribes. The white settlers came into the area as part of the Peters' Colony in the 1850's. Mary's Creek Post Office was set up around 1855. A new school named "Old Rawhide" was built in 1872 by several of the new settlers. After being burned down in 1879, it was re-established and called the Miranda School after one of its benefactors. A cemetery was part of the school grounds. The area was known by the same name as the school at this time. In 1880 a post office was established at Benbrook.

Part of the "Old Chisholm Trail" comes through Benbrook as cattle were route here to avoid the congestion of Fort Worth.
