Aubrey, the town, was officially founded 1867, when Civil War veteran Lemuel Noah Edwards built the second frame house there. Edwards eventually gave each of his 10 children a lot on which to build a home. The Edwards family was instrumental in several civil developments. Dancing was not allowed, but the townspeople often gathered in the Edwards home for singing and listening to music performed on an organ that Edwards had imported.
In 1881, the Texas and Pacific Railway completed a track and station in Aubrey and commenced operations.
Earlier in the century, Aubrey became known for the peanut farms that surrounded the town. In the early 2000's horse ranches surrounded Aubrey and it is world renown for its breeding stock. Today Aubrey is experiencing a boom in new home construction, replacing the grounds of the old peanut farms.
Close to both Lake Ray Roberts and Lake Lewisville, while only 30 minutes from Frisco, makes it an attractive place for new home owners.
