Settlers established homesteads here in the 1840s, and the town was laid out by Scott McKinney in 1853. It was named for railroad stockholder Marie Van Alstyne when the town became a stop on the line. Forrest Moore Park offers walking trails, sports fields, tennis and basketball courts, a pavilion and a playground. Off U.S. 75 between Dallas and Sherman.
