The present-day area where Plano now sits began as a rolling prairie of tall grasses and grazing bison. The first settlers discovered the area around the 1840s and were drawn to the richness of the land for farming possibilities. After the establishments of a sawmill, store, and post office, the town was named Plano from the Spanish word for “flat.” In 1872, the Houston and Texas Central Railway arrived which created a link to the new markets of Dallas and Houston. The small-time farming of Plano would soon transition to large cotton farms and cattle ranches.
By 1874 the population was more than 500 people and the city’s first official mayor was named around the same time. Shortly after this advancement, fires in the business district delayed further growth as a rebuilding period was required. By 1881, the city began flourishing again with a diverse trade market and established the first school district which would later become Plano Independent School District. In 1900 the population surged to 1,304 and continued from there. Plano became known as a farm and ranch town and it wasn’t until 1960 that the industry focus shifted from solely farming to more technology based. The neighboring city of Dallas experienced a large growth spurt of technology firms setting up shop in the city and because Plano was so close by, city planners prepared for that same growth in their city.
After many public works projects were initiated to rejuvenate the nation following World War II, Plano slowly began to see increases in population. In 1970 the population was reported to be around 18,000 and by 1980 it had jumped to 72,000. Due to the expert planning referenced earlier, Plano was well equipped for this kind of growth and so minimal growing pains were felt by veterans and new citizens alike. Word of the great environment spread to large corporations and in the 1980s, they slowly began to move their headquarter offices to the city with the first being JCPenney and Frito-Lay. The addition of more advanced highways, medical facilities, and higher education rounded out the offerings of Plano making it one of the fastest growing towns in the United States and once of the largest suburbs of Dallas.
Present day Plano has scored at the top in various rankings including livability, best places to live in America, most dog friendly, most affordable and most safe.
