Preston Ridge Chapter

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution

Frisco, Texas









The geographic location where Frisco, Texas was founded is dominated by a gently sloping ridge of high ground that extends from the Red River to present-day Dallas. The ridge runs between the East and Elm forks of the Trinity River in North Texas. In Texas, it is called Preston Ridge. With rainfall draining to the east or west, the ridge provides a dry natural roadway with few creeks or ravines to cross. The Native Americans first adapted the trail as an easy route to avoid the heavily wooded and boggy areas of creek and river bottoms. As the region was populated by other settlers and trade began to flourish, Preston Ridge naturally became a primary travel route into and out of Texas.

This travel route became the Preston Road Cattle Trail, one branch of the main cattle trail from Texas to Missouri, developed in 1841. Preston Ridge is now known as modern-day Preston Road.

Preston Ridge Chapter was organized on December 2, 2000 with 17 members. The Organizing Regent was Elizabeth Wolfe.
