History of Anna, TX
Although Collin McKinney settled within a few miles of Anna’s future townsite in 1846, John F. Greer (arrived in 1867) is credited with building the first home and store in Anna. The Houston and Texas Central Railway passed through the area in 1873. By the time Anna was platted in 1883, it had a population of 20, 2 stores, a steam gristmill, and a Baptist church. A post office also opened in that year.
By 1890 the town had a population of 100–200. It incorporated in 1913, with John Greer as first mayor. In 1892, the Greenville and Northwestern Railway between Anna and Blue Ridge via Westminster was built. The line proved unsuccessful, and was abandoned in 1920. Anna’s first bank, the Continental Bank, was organized in 1902, and the Collin County State Bank was organized in 1913 with R. C. Moore as president.
The population of Anna was 538 in 1929 and 467 in 1931. Some sources suggest that the community was named after John Greer’s daughter. Others report that the town was named in honor of Anna Quinlan, daughter of George A. Quinlan, former superintendent of the Houston and Texas Central. Still another story suggests that Anna Quinlan was the wife of George Quinlan and the daughter of J. L. Greer. Finally, another story attributes the name to Anna Huntington, daughter of C. P. Huntington, who built the Dallas-Denison railroad line.
In the mid-1980s, Anna had 855 residents and several businesses. In 1990, the population was 904. In 2010, Anna’s population was 8,314.
