The Collin County Historical Society began in 1957 with Roy and Helen Hall who saw a need for preserving local history. They began collecting stories of past events by interviewing people and collecting family papers and photographs. Roy would write up his research in articles submitted to local newspapers. In later years, Helen wrote several books about Collin County pioneer families, schools, churches, communities, and the history of the city of McKinney. By 1975, the collection had outgrown not only their home but also the collecting efforts of other historically minded folks from Plano, Frisco, McKinney, and other communities around the county.
