I am guessing that you are referring to I-30.

And yes, Frisco has changed a lot over the years, or so I have been told. I am not originally from the DFW area, so I only know it in todays light. But I have heard and seen pictures of it when it was a very small railroad town that was considered in the boonies. Much different today!

That church is long gone now and LakePointe has moved into there. LakePointe Baptist was in Rowlett and their membership was growing and Church on the Rock in Rockwall was dwindling so they basically swapped properties. LakePointe has continued to grow like crazy and Church on the Rock is no more.

Rockwall has changed a LOT in the last 10 years, heck even 5 years. It is a GREAT area and a good area to raise a family.

Now I'm even more confused as to which is Rowlett and which is Rockwall.

I think our hayrides out there in the late 1970s and early 80s crossed the lines of each --- LOL. Yes folks it was all farms! Also as a very small child I remember picking pecans in what is now underwater just before Lake Ray Hubbard was dammed off...

That part of I-30 where Faulkner developed the condos was in Garland. It was between Rose Hill/Bobtown and Chaha/Zion before it crossed the lake for the first bridge.

Frisco: Home of the "Fightin Coons".

Easy......... Garland is the portion all the way up till the first bridge going East that crosses over the lake. The City of Dallas owns the lake and therefore the bridges are the "Dallas City Limits". The peninsula that is between the two bridges is also Dallas. Once you cross the second bridge your in Rockwall. The only part of Rowlett along I-30 is to the north of I-30 at Dalrock and only thel LITTLE TEENY SLIVER where the gas station w/ the Dickey's BBQ and the hotel are. The other side of Dalrock is Dallas as well on that side of I-30. The park on the south is Dallas, Robertson Park. Rowlett has wanted to buy it but Dallas wants mucho dinero for it and Rowlett is outta funds.


I know what you mean. My parents had some good friends out in Sunnyvale and way back then it was as day trip to go see them. Part of their land was used for the lake.

Wonder if anyone has or knows where old pictures of Frisco can be found?

As for the bridges over lake Ray Hubbard and what is Dallas and Garland etc. it is all confusing to me because I haven’t been out there in many, many, years and when I did get out there it wasn’t often and I don’t remember much.

I remember a Terry’s Restaurant in an A-frame building on the highway but I am thinking that was I-20 going toward Canton. I didn’t get out to Lake Ray Hubbard much for any reason so it could have been the same highway, as I am too lazy to google it.
