The Heritage Association of Frisco is dedicated to saving Frisco’s history. Once a small agricultural community that saw little change in its population for decades, Frisco now bears the distinction of one of Texas’ fastest growing cities. Recognizing that the current flood of building and development would erase much of Frisco’s history, The Heritage Association organized in 1998 and set a goal to “research, preserve and share” the town’s rich heritage.
Today the organization is one of the most successful in Frisco’s history. The Heritage Association has served the city and its developers as a resource for identifying historic sites that has resulted in the preservation and commemoration of such places as the Crozier-Sickles house, Twin Wells and Cotton Gin Road. The organization has been instrumental in the creation and planning of Heritage Center Park and museum.
Whether you are a long time resident or new to Frisco, we invite you to browse our web site and encourage you to participate and support this worthy organization. It’s a great way to make Frisco your hometown! If you would like more information, you are welcome to contact our executive board.
