Allen has a rich history since its incorporation as a city in 1953. The Allen community has grown and thrived under the stable, dedicated leadership of present and past mayors / councilmembers over the years. It is because of their service and that of the countless supporters, volunteers and community involvement, that our city has become what it is today - a well planned community with emphasis on our citizens, education and healthy economic growth. Furthermore, Allen continues to demonstrate a strong devotion to preserving our environment.
The historical highlights of the City of Allen mayors along with a photo display in the City Hall Rotunda was provided as a project of Leadership Allen Class XVIII. Additional information about the City’s history is available through the City Secretary’s Office on the third floor of City Hall or by calling 214.509.4107.
