At home in Prosper
Prosper, Texas, in Collin County is located just north of the crossroads of University (Hwy. 380) and Preston Road (S.H. 289).“Traditional country living in the heart of horse country is one of the best ways to describe Prosper. The town was born from the merger of two small communities called Richland and Rock Hill, during the establishment of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad in 1902. Once the communities merged, the name of Prosper was chosen because of the prosperous crops that year. The town of Prosper was the central stop for the railroad between Dallas and Sherman and was officially incorporated in 1914.

Prosper offers its residents a quiet, rural setting without being too far from the cities of Frisco, McKinney and Plano. Through development and strategic planning, the town council is hoping to attract more retail establishments. Although the population of Prosper is under 5,000, Prosper’s population increased by almost 30 percent last year, making it the fastest-growing community in North Texas. Long-time residents and newcomers alike are all part of the fabric of this progressive community.
