In 1859, Morgan C. Hamilton bought large tracts of land along Brushy Creek from Shiloh to Rice's Crossing. Hamilton died in 1883, willing the land to his nephew, Theodore Van Buren Coupland. Mr. Coupland sold a 100-foot right-of-way to the Taylor, Bastrop and Austin Railroad in 1887. Two Taylor men subsequently formed the Coupland City Corporation to subdivide and sell land for the newly formed unincorporated community of Coupland.[4]

Coupland residents voted overwhelmingly to incorporate on November 6, 2012, the 125th anniversary of its founding. The City of Coupland held its first City Council elections on May 13, 2013, with Jack Piper running unopposed for Mayor.[5]
