Allen Texas is northeast of Dallas about 25 miles.
We were sitting at a stoplight in Allen recently and were tickled to see this memorial to the first train robbery in Texas!
I would take a better picture if I could find this corner again
The plaque reads:
"The first train robbery in Texas took place in Allen where railroad tracks cross Main Street. Sam Bass led the hold-up on Feb 22, 1878."
Only in Texas would a town proudly boast of having the first train robbery in the state.
Thanks for dropping by!
