About McAllen Texas

History of McAllen

San Miguel Extension and Hidalgo came to the Santa Anita Ranch in 1904. James and his father, John McAllen, donated land to the railroad constructors to ensure it crossed the region. However, it was not until December 5, 1904, that the McAllen Townsite Company came into existence after its formation by John McAllen, Lott Uriah, and James Balli McAllen, among other founders. This new community, formed and named after John, had a depot near its county seat Hidalgo which is 8 miles towards the south.

Most of the land on the city's east side was under cultivation by 1911. Crops cultivated included broom corn, figs, cotton, grapes, alfalfa, and citrus fruits, to mention a few. This year, this part of the city had an estimated population of 1,000 citizens since west McAllen was nonexistent.
