McAllen, Texas, Information
Over the last decades, McAllen has transformed into the Valley's business, commerce and government leader. The city has become home to scores of national businesses and the centre of most state and federal government operations in the Valley.
In 1993, McAllen-Miller International airport was completed and first-ever students registered at the newly created South Texas Community College. A new city hall building was dedicated in 1995.The old Southern Pacific Railroad Depot is one of the more graceful buildings in McAllen. It opened for service in August 1927, and served as a passenger terminal until 1952. From 1953-1985 it was occupied by a number of public agencies, including the police department, jail and municipal court. It was restored by a group of attorneys who use it for their law office. This building has a Texas Historical Commission Marker.
Today, McAllen enjoys explosive growth and the near-constant addition of new and beautiful buildings.
