Frisco’s birth in 1902 signaled the beginning of the end for six once-thriving small towns--Bates, Camey, Erudia, Foncine, Lebanon and Rock Hill. Each had churches, homes, schools, businesses and a post office. Eventually, these towns and other smaller communities disappeared, but they live on in street names, historic markers and in the memories of old-timers. Their land has been absorbed into the footprint that is Frisco today. A companion book/souvenir is available in the Museum Gift Shop or online.
