Frisco, Texas. This bustling metropolitan north of Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, bursting at the seams with opportunity, and entertainment is no exception.
At one time, the area now known as Frisco was just a wagon stop along the Shawnee Trail. Discover this rich history and more at the Frisco Heritage Center. This 16,000 sq ft museum showcases the early days of this wild west town through indoor and outdoor exhibits, original memorabilia, restored architecture, and interactive fun. Stroll through an old church, sit at a desk at a schoolhouse, and peer behind bars inside a replicated jail cell. Visit the Frisco Heritage Center to learn the history of the town you will be proud to call home.
