History
European settlers came to the area near present-day Plano in the early 1840s.A mail service was established, and after rejecting several names for the nascent town (including naming it in honor of then-President Millard Fillmore),residents suggested the name Plano (from the Spanish word for "flat"), as a reference to the local terrain. The name was accepted by the post office.In 1872, the completion of the Houston and Central Texas Railwayhelped the city to grow, and it was incorporated in 1873. Also in 1881, the city assumed responsibility for what would eventually become Plano Independent School District (PISD), ending the days of it being served only by private schools.
