Frankford is named for the Frankford community which began in the 1850s as a watering hole on the Shawnee Cattle Trail. The town developed after the Civil War in the area of the Bent Tree Country Club and flourished until stopped by the railroad in around 1888. By 1930, little remained. The city of Dallas annexed the area in 1975, but Frankford students still attend Plano ISD schools. Frankford Middle School opened for the 1998-99 school term and was built at a cost of $13.4 million.
