Lowry Crossing Texas, a History


Starting out

  I'd really like to know more, but for now I hope you enjoy what I have found.

Location

  Lowry Crossing is located at the intersection of S. Bridgefarmer Road and FM-546 in Collin County, Texas.

  According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.8 square miles (7.2 kmē), all of it land.

Trains

  The East Line and Red River, also known as the Sherman, Shreveport, and Southern went from Jefferson through Farmersville and Lowry Crossing. The line itself was discontinued in 1941, but parts are still in use.


Through Time

  In January of 1984 the City of Lowry Crossing had been offered a grant to be used for the "benefit of the citizens" of the city. The City Council decided that a fire department would benefit all the residents of Lowry Crossing. The Lowry Crossing Volunteer Fire Department held its very first meeting in January 1984, soon after the City Council appointed the first fire chief, William E. Wells.

Education

  Lowry Crossing is covered by the Princeton and McKinney School Districts.
