Plano started as a small farm community in the 1870's in Collin County Tx. Local residents came from miles around to access hospital, school and government services. This once local hub has now evolved into a vibrant neighborhood mini city.

Starting a City

Plano originated in the early 1840's and was founded by mostly Tennessee and Kentucky pioneers. The first established buildings were a gristmill and sawmill along with a store and gin facility. When it came time to name select a name, Fillmore was the first choice, but was rejected and replaced with Plano from the understanding that it meant "plain" describing the surrounding terrain. In 1881, there was a large fire downtown that destroyed the business district. This gave way to the newer more modern brick structures that we still see today. With many technology companies relocating to Plano in the 1960's and 1970's, Plano began to see enormous growth and quickly stretched to reach the Dallas line.
