A Look at Frisco's History

Frisco was initially founded by pioneers who arrived in Texas as part of the push to settle the West. It was officially founded in 1845 and grew quickly. It was originally named Emerson, but the name was later changed to Frisco city in honor of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway. As railroads and other industries arrive in the state, Frisco became an important center of both agriculture and business and remains so to this day.  Today, Frisco is a vibrant and thriving city with so much to offer. For so many reasons, Frisco would be a great place to call home.
