Back in 1902, the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway was built through a community called Lebanon. A new city formed around the train stop and was given the name of Everson. When that name was turned down by the United States Postal Service for being to close to another Texas town's name, residents decided on the name Frisco City in honor of the railway.

Now known as Frisco, it's an affluent city situated within the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex. With over 150,000 residents, it's one of the fastest growing cities in north Texas, and below are some of the reasons why this community is on the rise.

Millions of people flock to those little “villages” each year, to experience their unique ambiances and diversities. Uptown Dallas, Texas, is just such a village, just a few minutes north of the city center.
