history of plano

While the City of Plano is gearing up to celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2023, the City's history spans long before 1873. A timeline capturing Plano's history from 1500-present day was compiled as part of the Heritage Preservation Plan update and can be viewed using the link below.


Since 1981, the City of Plano has identified potentially historic properties as part of the city's preservation plan.  Preservation Plano 150 continues this tradition with an updated list of Potential Heritage Resources and other properties which require more research.
