About McAllen TX
The community of McAllen is in a region called the Rio Grande Valley, located at the southernmost tip of Texas. McAllen is also located next to US Route 83, which connects West Texas to the Valley approximately five miles from the Mexican border. Other primary highways that serve the community include Texas State Highway 107 and US Route 281. Miller Int6ernational Airport provides regional air transportation and daily flights to Mexico City, Dallas, and Houston.
During the late 1800’s, a developer named John McAllen settled in the Rio Grande Valley and founded the location for a new community that came to be known as West McAllen in 1904. It wasn’t long before other developers founded another new community called East McAllen, close by. Eventually, the two communities became one and the year 1911 brought the incorporation of McAllen as a city. McAllen experienced steady growth during the next several hundred years and the activation of the FTZ (Free Trade Zone) brought about an increase in manufacturing and industrial trade. The impact of the FTZ was enhanced during the 1990’s with the passing of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), which resulted in the creation of numerous new jobs in both Reynosa, Mexico and the United States. During the next 30 years, McAllen has transformed into the regional Valley leader in government and commerce and has become home to many different national businesses.
It wasn’t until the 1740’s that, primarily on the southern side of the Rip Grande River, the new community began to take shape, while some pioneers had explored and passed through South Texas. John McAllen arrived in the Rio Grande Valley in the early 1850’s. That is when the development started coming together as it is currently known as McAllen. In 1904, John McAllen and others founded the location for the new community that came to be known as West McAllen and a year later, the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico Railroad reached the community. On another tract of land, other developers founded a community known as East McAllen in 1907.
By 1910, the two communities had become one and started a newspaper, and built residences, churches, and businesses. That year the population of McAllen was 150 people. That population had increased to 5,300 people by 1920. During the next several decades, McAllen grew steadily and, according to the census that was taken in 1960, the population of McAllen had increased to 32,728 people. During the 1950’s, the community added an airport and a civic center. There was also the establishment of a museum, a library, and a new city hall added during the 1960’s.
From the 1970’s throughout the 1980’s the population of McAllen nearly doubled to 66,281 people and continued to grow steadily. In 1976, the La Plaza Mall opened. During the last 30 years, McAllen has transformed into a government, commerce, and business leader in the Valley. The community has become the center of most federal and state government operations in the Valley as well as home to numerous national businesses.
The first ever students registered at the recently established Southern Texas Community College and the McAllen-Miller International opened in 1993. In 1995, a new city hall building was dedicated in 1995.
One of the more graceful buildings in McAllen is the old Southern Pacific Railroad Depot. In 1927, it opened for service and up until 1952 served as a passenger terminal. Between 1953 and 1985 it was occupied by many different public agencies that included a municipal court, jail, and the police department. A group of lawyers restored the building and used it for their law office. This building has a Texas Historical Commission Marker.
Mayer Oliver Archer deeded Archer Park to the community of McAllen for use as a public park. In 1933, the city commissioner for McAllen named Archer Park. The McAllen Public Library was located in the basement underneath the bandstand between 1936 and 1949. This became the location for many community activities such as the 4th of July celebrations and the Christmas Posada.
In 1909, the first Methodist Church sanctuary in McAllen was constructed. In 1928, the current structure of the First United Methodist Church was constructed. This building is an official Historical Marker. These days, McAllen enjoys the nearly constant addition of beautiful, new buildings and explosive growth. In 1998, in north McAllen, the Texas State Bank building was built.
Also located in McAllen is an outstanding science and art museum known as the International Museum of Art and Science. The Earth Science Gallery offers a working meteorological display and a long term exhibition of dinosaur tracks, while the North Gallery offers a display of Mexican arts and crafts.
A large collection of artifacts and exhibits that cover southern Texas history that include the early farming and ranching period, the Rio Grande steamboat era, the Mexican War, and the Spanish colonization and exploration are on display at the Museum of South Texas History.
Nature lovers will appreciate the McAllen Wing of the World Birding Center known as the Quinta Mazatlan, whose goal it is to preserve the 1930’s native animals, plants, and adobe estate in the Rio Grande Valley.
Established in 1943, the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is home to many native animals, waterfowl, and birds in the Valley. This 2,000 acre preserve brings back life as it was in the area during the early 1900’s prior to it becoming heavily developed. The Bentsen-Rio Grande State Park is another outdoor that offers more than 500 acres of dry chaparral brush lands and moist woodlands that is ideal for picnicking, hiking, and camping.
