A+ Quality AC Repair in Allen for over 40 Years!
History of Allen TX
Long before Joplin’s provided AC repair in Allen, immigrants and pioneers began settling around Allen in the mid-1800s. In 1872, Allen became a town. In 1878, Sam Bass and his gang committed the first known Texas train robbery by holding up the newly built Houston & Central Texas Railroad. On the upside, the railroad brought prosperity because plant-based edibles could now be distributed and sold across the country. This meant that Allen farmers could grow and sell crops in addition to raising cattle.
Allen Texas is 25 miles north of Dallas in Collin County TX. In 1953, Allen incorporated as a small town with roughly 400 residents. It now has a population of over 85,000, and most households are married couples with kids. The majority of residents are between 25 and 45 years old, and the median family income is about $100,000.
