Past and Present
In the1990s, the northern Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex suburban development tide hit the northern border of Plano and spilled into Frisco, sparking explosive growth into the 2000s. The city population was 116,989 at the 2010 census. As of late 2015, the city had an estimated population of 151,960.

When American pioneers began settling in the Dallas area, many traveled by wagon trains along the old Shawnee Trail. This trail was also used for cattle drives north from Austin. The trail later became Preston Trail, and later, Preston Road. Preston Road is one of the oldest north-south roads in all of Texas. All this activity along the trail led to the formation of the community of Lebanon. Lebanon was granted a U.S. post office in 1860. A line of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway was being built through the area and watering holes were needed along the railway for the steam engines. Lebanon was on Preston Ridge at the time and the elevation was too high so the watering hole was placed about four miles to the west on lower ground. A community began to develop around the train stop and the residents of Lebanon used logs to move their homes to the new community. The new town was named Emerson, but was rejected by the U.S. Postal Service as it was too similar to another to another Texas town. In 1904, residents chose Frisco City in honor of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway on which the town was founded, later shortened to Frisco.

Most of Frisco is within the Frisco Independent School District (Frisco ISD). Some parts extend into Lewisville Independent School District, Little Elm Independent School District, and Prosper Independent School District.
