The city was originally staked out in 1846 by settlers interested in land grants issued by the Peter’s Colony before Texas had even become a state. A post office was eventually established in 1891 shortly after the St. Louis Southwestern Railway arrived in the area. The city experienced a sharp population decline after the Great Depression as people migrated towards the Dallas metropolitan area seeking new employment opportunities. The population rose again in the 1970s, as the neighboring city of Plano expanded. The population continues to grow steadily, especially after the construction of the President George Bush Turnpike in 2000. Since the population growth and construction boom, the city has been ranked as one of the best places to live in Texas by multiple websites and magazines.
