Did You Know? - The Story Behind The Name Frisco #summitrealestate

Did You Know?

This week Summit Real Estate’s Kelie Gray is talking to us about the origin behind the name of one of our towns here in Summit County, Frisco!

In 1875, a scout named Captain Henry Learned attached a sign to a cabin declaring this area “Frisco City”. His intention was to draw a railroad line into the area, which was already slated to be a vital stagecoach stop serving the transportation needs of pioneers and miners.

One capital stakeholder was the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway, a.k.a. The Frisco Line, incorporated in 1876.

“Frisco” was not named after San Francisco, CA. The name Frisco was derived from a combination of letters associated with the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway Company:
👉 The “F R” from Francisco the “I S” from St. Louis the “C O” for Company, which produced FR-IS-CO!
