History of McKinney, TX
In around 1841, the first settlers came to Collin County from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas. The city of McKinney and the county of Collin were both named after Collin McKinney. Collin McKinney was a Land Surveyor, Patriot, Legislator, one of the 60 Signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence, and Author of the law which created counties in the northern part of Texas.
In 1850, the population of Collin County was nearly 2,000. By 1890, Collin County had grown to 50,087 residents. In 1883 the first city hall was built at a cost of $1,350.00. It was occupied by the City Council, which consisted of the Mayor and 6 aldermen. In 1859 McKinney was incorporated. In 1909, the citizens voted to replaced the current form of government with a new Commission Form of government.
For 125 years, McKinney served as the principal commercial center for the county. The city provided farmers with flour, corn, cotton mills & gins, a cotton compress and cottonseed oil mill. Additionally, there were as banks, churches, schools, and newspapers.
Additional businesses who come to McKinney include a textile mill and a garment-manufacturing company. Starting in 1872, farmers and manufacturers were able to ship their goods on the Houston and Texas Central Railway. In 1881, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad added a second railway. From 1908 to 1948 the Texas Electric Railroad (running from Denison to Dallas and Waco) also served McKinney.
In 1848, McKinney’s population was 35, and grew to nearly 5,000 by 1912. By 1953 McKinney had more than 10,000 residents. The town continued to be an agri-business center for the county until the late 1960s. By 1970, Plano had grown larger than McKinney and, by the mid-1980s, McKinney had become a “bedroom community” for residents who worked in Plano and Dallas. In 1990 the population was 21,283. By 2000, the population had grown to 56,000 and to 133,000 by 2010.
