The Frisco Heritage Museum is located just east of the Frisco City Hall. The museum is part of the Frisco Heritage Center which contains historic buildings that have been restored plus a steam locomotive and wooden caboose. A visit to the Museum gives you a glimpse of what life was like for the earliest settlers of this area - how they lived, worked, and played. Whether you are a long time resident or new to the area, you and your family will enjoy a visit to the Frisco Heritage Center and Museum. Take a stroll through the site or enjoy the view from the gazebo, we invite you to come and see a piece of history.

The Evolution Of Kitchens In 28 Photos

Does this cooler weather have anyone else in a fall baking mood? We're thinking about kitchens and baking and how kitchens have changed a lot in the last 150 years!

We LOVE photos of old kitchens, but from 1860-1900, there are precious few available. This got us wondering why, which led to exploring how kitchens have evolved over time. The following 28 photos and illustrations give a quick history of how the kitchen evolved from 1860-1970. We hope you enjoy! Th...

Heritage Association of Frisco has a new tool to help us honor Frisco citizens that have received the Purple Heart medal for service and sacrifice.

Today is National Purple Heart Day and is a time to recognize and honor the service and sacrifice of military personnel who have been killed or wounded because of enemy action. We have identified thirteen former Frisco residents who were eligible for a Purple Heart, and you can see their stories on our website, on a page we call Veteran Heroes. http://www.friscoheritage.org/category/veteran-heroes/

Very interesting read from Barrington Living History Farm - Texas Parks and Wildlife, providing context on the "invention" of the cotton gin.
#PlayInquisitively #PlayFrisco

History Myth Monday –

Myth #13: Before Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin, the seeds had to be picked out by hand.

Truth: Two myths in one – Eli Whitney did not invent the first cotton gin, and cotton seeds were not hand removed even a hundred years before his design. Before Whitney developed his cotton gin in the 1790’s, roller gins (which worked like an old crank clothes wringer) were in common use and had been since at least the 1600’s.

Home | D-Day | June 6, 1944 | The United States Army

Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when "more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops."

The U.S. Army remembers June 6, 1944: The World War II D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
