Historic Handley was formerly an independent small town on the Interurban Streetcar line between Fort Worth and Dallas. The historic storefronts along East Lancaster Avenue still draw specialty retail shoppers and serve as a focal point for this historic east Fort Worth neighborhood.
The advocacy and professional organizations that promote business development and investment in this village include the Handley Neighborhood Association, Historic Handley Development Corporation, and East Fort Worth Business Association.
The village area includes small antique and furniture stores, dining establishments, professional offices, neighborhood retail and small-scale civic facilities.
