One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Frisco’s population has blossomed from just over 33,000 to over 100,000 by 2008. A suburb of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Frisco has become home for many professionals who work in the “Metroplex” area, becoming known as a bedroom community, enticing new residents to the area.
The National Arbor Day Foundation has named Frisco “Tree City USA” every year since 2003, as well as receiving the National Arbor Day Foundation Growth Award in 2007 for the third year in a row. This honor recognizes environmental improvement and encourages a higher level of tree care and preservation within a community.
Named the seventh fastest growing suburb in the United States by a 2007 Forbes study, Frisco has become a great place to raise a family, enjoying all the amenities of a small town while being close to the big city.

When Dallas was being settled, some of the settlers traveled along the Old Shawnee Trail, used for cattle drives from Austin. The community of Lebanon was founded along this trail and the U.S. Postal Office established their mail route in 1860. In 1902, there was a need for watering holes along the rails for the steam engines and Lebanon was a little high in elevation, making new watering holes a necessity. Placed about four miles to the west on lower ground, a community grew around the stops and the watering holes. Lebanon residents simply moved their houses to the new community of logs, establishing a new town, and naming it Emerson. Unfortunately that name was rejected because there was another town with a name very similar to it, so in 1904, the residents chose Frisco City to honor the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway on which it was founded, later shortening the name to just Frisco.
