Nestled in the heart of Frisco, the Frisco Heritage Museum stands as a testament to the rich history and vibrant culture of the area. Located at 6455 Page Street, just a stone’s throw away from the Frisco City Hall and Library, this museum is a treasure trove of stories, artifacts, and memories that paint a vivid picture of Frisco’s past.
Opened in 2008, the museum spans a generous 18,000 square feet, housing collections that represent the diverse history of the Frisco area. One of its most notable collections is the Bolin antique collection, which was previously housed in McKinney. This collection was generously donated to the City of Frisco by the Bolin family, ensuring that future generations can appreciate and learn from these invaluable artifacts.
As you step into the museum, you are immediately transported to different eras of Frisco’s history. From a turn-of-the-century printing press to a service station featuring cars from 1915 and 1930, the museum offers a unique glimpse into the daily lives of Frisco’s residents from bygone eras. Visitors can also step into an early 1900s parlor, experience a 1960s era den, and marvel at the “King Cotton” exhibit. For those with a penchant for railroads, the museum boasts an impressive collection of railroad memorabilia.
One of the highlights of the museum is “The Heritage Theater,” where visitors can sit back and enjoy old movies, immersing themselves in the cinematic history of the region. Additionally, a timeline room showcases a video detailing the history of Frisco, accompanied by a panoramic view of all the buildings in the Heritage Center.
The Heritage Association of Frisco also maintains an exhibit space within the museum, featuring changing displays that delve deeper into Frisco’s history. And for those looking to take a piece of history home, the museum’s gift shop on the 1st floor offers a variety of items catering to both young and old. From historical publications by the Heritage Association of Frisco to unique souvenirs, there’s something for everyone.
