  • Allen Tx is more than just a little slice of Texas history. It’s heritage dates back to the late 1700’s when the region was inhabited by Caddo and Comanche Indian tribes. European immigrants began arriving in the 1840s,giving rise to the kind of Cowboy and Indian stories which make up the wild west. The tribes eventually migrated west. A historic marker commemorating one of the final conflicts between settlers and native tribes is located along State Highway 5 and Rowlett Creek near the existing railroad. Allen Is rich in the history of old west. The Settlers, in search of free land, arrived by traveling the Texas Road and the Central National Road constructed by the Republic of Texas. A stage line ran from Bonham through McKinney to Allen and Plano, crossing Rowlett Creek where SH 5 is located now. Allen was actually a part of the Peter’s Colony Land Grant to the Texas Emigration & Land Company. The original land patents are still on file in Austin

    Here is an interesting bit of History, The first train robbery in Texas took place in Allen on February 22, 1878, when Sam Bass and his gang stopped and robbed the train in broad daylight. The original township of Allen was laid out in 1872 and constructed as a railroad depot according to the Houston and Texas Central Railroad (H&TC). In 1918, the H&TC built a combination freight/passenger depot in the Allen Central Business District. The Allen Heritage Center and Museum replicates that original depot. It is the home of the Allen Heritage Guild whose mission is to ensure tomorrow’s heritage by recording past and current milestones for the city. One of Allen's most recognizable landmarks, the Old Stone Dam, is to one of the only remaining stone dams in the United States. It was used as a water station for the H&TC railway. The remaining site includes the stone dam, a foundation for a pump house and a foundation for a water tower which is designated by the Texas Historical Commission as a State Archaeological Landmark. The City of Allen incorporated in 1953. It has experienced many growth spurts over the last 60 years and it is now home to about 86,000 people
