Newman Village is not only known for being beautiful, it’s rich with personality and history that makes it special. In fact, the Newman family first arrived in Frisco in 1841 from Tennessee and continue to reside in the Frisco area to this day!
John Lenox Newman was the first of the Newman family to arrive in Frisco, which was then called the town of Emerson. When the Frisco Railroad came through in 1907 is when the town of Emerson officially became Frisco.
Today, six generations later since John Lenox Newman arrived, the family still resides in the area. Some of the Newman family members lived right outside of Newman Village, they have recently moved but choose to preserve the beautiful trees outside the home that was knocked down and now the lot is being transformed into a park for the surrounding families to enjoy.
