McKinney, TX is an important town in North Texas, just a few miles north of Dallas, and home to many who work in the large city. It is also located between multiple lakes, which are popular attractions in the hot Texan summers. In the past decade McKinney has been named one of the fastest growing cities in the nation multiple times, as it has almost doubled its population in the last 10 years. A couple of publications have even gone so far as to rate it “the best place to live in America” a few years ago. McKinney first brought in residents because of the presence of cotton fields, cornfields, mills, and oil refineries. Soon the town became a popular place to live due to the large amount of work, its proximity to Dallas, and for the presence of shops, boutiques, schools, and an ornate opera house. Many of these early buildings and businesses are still standing, giving the town a historic feel.
