The county seat of Collin County is the remarkable City of McKinney, Texas. Situated just thirty-two miles north of Dallas and west of State Highway 5, McKinney has served as the county seat since 1848. Prior to that, it was Buckner that had the honor. It seems fitting that McKinney now has the distinction since Collin McKinney, one of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence is the namesake for both the city and the county.
This interesting history is only one of the many appealing attributes that make McKinney a must-consider destination for prospective homebuyers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area. McKinney wasn't incorporated until 1913, years after it had become the county seat. However, until surpassed in size by Plano in 1970, the city served as the county’s commercial center. For those working in Plano and Dallas, McKinney became a thriving commuter town in the mid-1980’s. Since then this splendid city has continued to undergo significant growth. In fact, in 1990 the city was home to only 21,300 residents but by 2000, it had more than doubled in size with almost 55,000 residents. Among the factors contributing to this rise in popularity is the city’s close proximity to a number of sought-after destinations like Lake Lewisville. The city is also home to much-desired hiking and biking trails, lush golf courses, picturesque parks and fabulous shopping, dining and entertainment options.
In addition to a rich history, great location and numerous amenities, McKinney also has wonderful real estate opportunities.
