If you think Texas means the desert, you’ve never been to Frisco. Since 2003, Frisco has received the “Tree City USA” designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation. Frisco, TX homes for sale with a pool are practically guaranteed to have well-kept shady trees surrounding them. This city, spread between Denton and Collin counties, is a little north of Dallas and is often listed as one of the best places to live in the U.S.
Frisco’s history can be traced back to the Shawnee Trail used by the American pioneers as a wagon trail. That trail became Preston Trail and was used for cattle drives from Austin. The trail eventually became a road and a settlement called Lebanon sprang up at Preston Ridge. Soon, the railway came through. The town was actually too high so the settlement moved their houses on logs down to the train stop, called Emerson. In 1904 citizens chose the name Frisco City in honor of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway since the U. S. Postal office said “Emerson” was too close to another city name in Texas.
