History & History Related Items

First known as Springville, Collinsville began settlement in the late 1850's. The land for the town was donated by Joshua Miller. After the Civil War, L. M. Collins and her two sons came here from Ann Arbor, Michigan. She began the first free school in the North Texas area. In the early 1880's, the Texas and Pacific Railway came through, which helped to establish the community as a shipping and retail center for the entire area. When incorporation took place in the 1890's, the town was renamed Collins after the early settler. The population of the town remained fairly stable at around 600 residents for many years. Beginning around 1975, a period of new growth began. By 1989, there are about 911 residents. The population grew to over 1,000 by the 1990's.
