History

The city began as a rural town situated six miles north of Frisco. In 1902, the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad was established, causing the communities of Richland and Rock Hill to merge. Thanks to crops that had been particularly prosperous, founders came up with the name “Prosper” for the new city.

Today, there is an interesting blend of suburban amenities and rural charm in the area. Because of its proximity to so many cities, the majority residents that live here commute to Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Little Elm, and Dallas for work and school.

Parks and Recreation


No matter which of the properties you buy, you are just minutes away from beautiful green space. Children can enjoy such things as the Windmill Playground and athletic fields at Frontier Park, and the city also offers annual outdoor music and art festivals that will give you a sense of belonging to the community. Boyer Park, Eagle’s Landing Park, Fire Station Park, Cedar Grove Park, and Folsom Park are all also within the city’s borders. You and your family can enjoy hiking trails, biking paths, nature areas, batting cages, playgrounds, and more. There is no reason to spend a single afternoon in front of the television with all of this amazing opportunity waiting for you.

Attractions and Activities
