This influx of families has created a demand for housing in Allen and has lead to the development of new master planned communities that include new schools and shopping, such as Watters Creek, tailored to the more upscale shopping crowd.

Allen Through the Years
Allen real estate has its beginnings in 1870, when the Houston & Texas Railroad decided to create the town as a stop on its railway line. The first reported train robbery was conducted in Allen, near McDermott. A huge fire ravaged most of Allen's business district in 1915, causing significant damage.

The peopled utilized the land for agricultural purposes until after World War II. Allen experienced a slowdown in its economy until high tech companies discovered the business and economical opportunities that the city offered from the early 1960s until the 1990s. Children's programs, such as ZOOM and Barney were filmed right in Allen during the 1990s as well.
