Overview of Allen
Home to one of the only remaining stone dams in the country, Allen is a town rich with history. Modern amenities are abundant in the quaint town as well. From great retail options to unbeatable outdoor parks, it’s no wonder Allen was ranked by CNN Money as one of the Best Places to Live in 2012. Coming in at No. 13 on the list, Allen’s affordability, safety, school quality, arts and ease-of-living are just a few of the accolades that got the town to its high ranking. Allen was also rated as one of the top ten Dallas suburbs, safest cities in America, best places to retire and best places to move.
Allen apartments for rent offer everything from outdoor recreation, convenience to sports events or concerts and access to a local vibrant culture.
Living in Allen, TX
The earliest settlers in Allen were the Caddo and Comanche Indian tribes. After settlers moved into the area, the tribes were removed and relocated to the north of the Red River. In the 1840s, European immigrants migrated to the town now known as Allen in search of free land. Along the Rowlett Creek near the railroad that still exists today, a battle ensued between the Native Americans and early settlers that was the last known conflict between the two groups in 1844.
In 1907, the Texas Traction Company purchased land on the west side of the main Houston and Texas Central Railroad to construct an Interurban line that would cut right through Allen as a stop between Denison and Dallas. The line was completed in 1908, but in 1915 a fire devastated much of the business district between the Interurban tracks and the railroad. The tracks remained open until 1948, but when it closed the population of Allen dropped and it wasn’t until the construction of U.S. Route 75 in 1960 that the town boomed once again.
