Plano History

The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation has a series of blog posts about Historic Landmarks in the Plano area. Part 5 is all about the Texas Pool. “Dallas North Estates was envisioned in 1959 by Herbert Hunt to create a better first impression of Plano when driving north from Dallas. Hunt acquired land in West Plano and directed the William Herbert Hunt Trust to guide the development of a deluxe neighborhood. North Texas’ first planned community was named Dallas North Estates to cash in on the more well-known city to the south,” the blog states.

National Register of Historic Places

On April 1, 2019, The Texas Pool was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Texas Historical Commission provided essential research and expertise in completing and submitting the National Register Application, officially declaring The Texas Pool to be the very first Texas-shaped pool in the country.
