The late-Victorian farm-house was built in 1891 on a 365-acre farm belonging to Mary Alice Farrell and her husband Hunter Farrell, a landowner and businessman whose family had moved to Texas from Virginia. The Farrells divorced in 1929 and eventually their daughter Ammie took over management of the farm and became an award-winning livestock breeder before her death in 1972. The farm was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. In 1986 the farm opened as a living museum utilizing the remaining 4.5 acres surrounding the home.
The Mission of the Heritage Farmstead Museum is to collect, preserve and interpret late 19th and early 20th century Blackland Prairie history while making appropriate use of the authentically restored Farrell-Wilson Farmstead, a designated historic site.
Centurion American Development Group’s $1 billion redevelopment will transform the existing Collin Creek Mall, which opened in 1981, into a pedestrian-friendly mixed-use project.
The revitalization of Collin Creek focuses on bringing the community together by incorporating modern amenities and open space. The overall focus of the development is to have a space where people can live, work, and play.
When completed, Collin Creek will be something that brings the community together and help to revitalize the city’s downtown district.
Collin Creek will be a lifestyle district in central Plano combining a vibrant retail development with innovative dining and entertainment concepts as well as a hub for business.
The development will include 340,000 square feet of central retail & dining space created by opening up and renovating the existing mall property, as well as a four-star hotel with 200 guest rooms and approximately 40,000 square feet of function space for corporate, social and charitable events.
The Collin Creek of the future is ideally positioned not only to reclaim that mantle but to cement the importance of the area and the Central Expressway corridor as the community linchpin linking east and west Plano with a central gathering point.
The Collin Creek community will include 500 upscale single-family and 2,300 multi-family properties as well as 300 first-class independent living residences. As a part of Plano’s ongoing commitment to green space, Collin Creek will include 8.9 acres of parks and 1.6 miles of walking trails. The younger residents will have the opportunity to attend school in Plano ISD.
The Platinum Corridor encompasses the best of North Dallas Shops, Retail, Fine Dining, & Entertainment. Beginning just south of Interstate 635 in north Dallas, the corridor hugs the Dallas North Tollway North to State Highway 121 in Frisco.
From its founding in the 1870s through the mid-20th Century, Downtown Plano was the heart of this small farming community. Plano citizens and surrounding Collin County residents came Downtown to access the cities of Dallas or Sherman by rail, to shop for household goods, and for access to critical services at the local hospital, school, and governmental offices.
Post-war development had a major impact, as it did on so many other American downtowns. Commuter rail service stopped operations. Through the 1970s, the geographic and commercial center of the City moved west with new growth, and Downtown Plano evolved into a place to buy knick knacks and antiques, losing much of the draw it once enjoyed. While City offices remained, the blocks were filled with dilapidated storefronts. By the mid-1980s, City leaders recognized the area’s need and took action upgrading sidewalks, streets and creating the first Downtown Vision plan.
Through a few decades of hard work and committed citizens, Downtown has reemerged as an exciting and vibrant place. Through the last decade, it has been reborn with a variety of shops, housing, light rail transit, and restaurants. The ghost town after 5 pm is gone, yet the history of Downtown and its small-town Texas, eclectic charm remains. The re-invigoration of Downtown continues with the support of its neighbors, merchants, and active supporters. Please visit this page for more on what is next for downtown!
