LEARN MORE ABOUT FRISCO TX
In 1902, a line of the Railway was being built through the area, and periodic watering stops were needed along the route for the steam locomotives. A community grew around this train stop. Residents actually moved their houses to the new community on logs. The new town was originally named Emerson, but that name was rejected by the U.S. Postal Service as being too similar to another town in Texas. In 1904, the residents chose Frisco City in honor of the Railway on which the town was founded, later shortened to its present name.
Today, Frisco is home to such attractions as the Toyota Stadium.
