In the northwest corner of Collin County, Celina was settled in 1879 and named for the postmaster's hometown in Tennessee. A railway came through the area in 1902, and in 1915, Celina became the site of the first road in the country built exclusively for automobiles--the Celina Pike.
Today, this community north of Dallas is growing but retains its small-town feel. The historic downtown plaza, at Walnut Street and Ohio Street, features a war memorial, shops and restaurants. Founder's Station Park downtown offers a playground, picnic area, gazebo and tennis courts.
The Celina Balloon Festival and Family Fun Day is held in October.
