getting around

Located just North of Plano along US Highway 75, Allen is the perfect suburb. While it borders Plano, McKinney, Fairview, Lovejoy, Lucas and Parker, Allen isn’t too big, and certainly not too small. Allen offers a little bit of everything: exceptionally rated schools, fantastic shopping, affordable housing and a friendly community that loves entertainment. Another reason Allen is one of the best small cities in the Metroplex is because it offers the right amount of rural and countryside appeal with a mix of small town charm and the convenience of a growing city.

the lowdown

Location and education are the two biggest factors attracting new residents to Allen. Well, affordability doesn't hurt either! Fun fact about Allen: there's an old school Sears and Roebuck designed house still standing on Belmont Street.

the history

Allen has been on the historical record as far back as 1844. A historic marker along State Highway 5 commemorates one of the last-known conflicts between early settlers and Native Americans. And while the first train robbery actually took place in Allen in 1878 by Sam Bass, Allen wasn’t officially incorporated until 1953. US Highway 75 was constructed in 1960, bringing in a wave of telecom corporations, new businesses and relocating families. Allen is full of rich history including being the location of the Muncey Massacre (shared with Plano), and home to the original Woodmen of World building, which doubled as a library.
