Old downtown Plano was started in 1852 by Eli Murphy, a storekeeper, and grew along the wagon road (Ave. K). In 1872, the H. & T. C. Railway came through bringing incorporation (1873) and further growth. The entire downtown burned in 1881, but the town rebuilt. The St. Louis, Arkansas, and Texas Railway came through in 1887 (also known as the Cotton Belt), and a national bank was opened. In 1895 and 1897, much of downtown burned again. By the 1890's, the town was a cotton and grain center.
