Allen Homes

Allen Parks

 

Allen, before it was Allen, was home to Caddo and Comanche Indians who had settled in these parts prior to the 1800’s. In the 1840”s, The Republic of Texas completed construction of two major roads providing easy access to immigrants from Europe.  The migration occurred in large part because of the promise of free land. Stage coaches from Bonham also made regular runs further boosting migration.

 

In the 1908, Allen was further developed to accommodate the need for a railroad stop between Denison and Dallas. But within seven years, a major fire destroyed the business section sinking a thriving community.  By the closure of the rail line, Allen’s population dropped to 400. Allen was officially incorporated in 1953 and the rest is history.

 

                                        Allen, a shining new town with a flair for quaint places!

 

Admittedly, the entire North Dallas area presents a great balance of business, retail, services and homes.  All well planned and well executed. Allen is a jewel amongst the surrounding towns that are equally as delightful to live, work and play in. Allen is a family place with a great smattering of businesses.  A thriving economy, great neighborhoods and some of the most awesome shopping and dining located in various beautifully appointed areas.  Then on the weekend, hang out and listen to concerts or dine al fresco.  What can I say, the place is in a word… cool!!! Allen, is easily accessible with a straight shot to downtown Dallas and easy access to the airport, and Fort Worth.
