History of Allen, Tx
Allen was named for Ebenezer Allen, a former Attorney General of Texas and one of the promoters of the railroad. The railroad built a freight and passenger depot in the Allen Central Business District.
Caddo and Comanche Indian tribes inhabited the region before European and American immigrants arrived. The tribes migrated west as early settlers entered the area.
In the 1840s immigrants of European descent came to Allen in search of free land. They arrived via the Texas Road and the Central Nation Road (constructed by the Republic of Texas). A stage line also ran from Bonham to Allen. Allen was part of the Peter’s Colony Land Grant from the Republic of Texas to the Texas Emigration & Land Company.
In 1907 the Texas Traction Company purchased land on the west side of the Houston and Texas Central Railroad track to build the Interurban line. Texas Traction planned to add Allen as a stop on its route from Denison to Dallas. The The Interurban closed in 1948 and the population of Allen declined to 400 in 1950.
The town was officially incorporated in 1953. Home Rule Status was adopted in 1979. U.S. Interstate 75 was built in 1960. Developmental Learning Materials and InteCom, Inc. relocated to Allen in the 1980s, leading the way for many corporate startups and relocations.
