Allen is home to the only known stone dam in the United States, which was used for transportation purposes. The 1874 Stone Dam created a source of water for the Houston & Texas Central Railway Company’s steam locomotives between Dallas and Denison, greatly contributing to the growth and prosperity of the region from the 1870s until steam locomotives were replaced by diesel engines.
