The city's history traces back to the early 1900s, when it was formed as the result of the San Francisco Railroad being built through the area. The shortened name "Frisco" was used for this railroad line, and thus, the city name was formed. Today, it is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas, about 20 miles north of Dallas.
Two bronze cattle drive sculptures depict days of the Shawnee Trail, part of Frisco's early heritage. These outdoor artworks can be seen year-round. 8400 Gaylord Parkway
