The city of Richardson is located in the eastern part of Texas in Dallas and Collins counties. First settlers came here in the 1840s. Economic growth of the region began after the Civil War when the railroad was built. However, Rischardson remained a small town until the major population growth after World War II. The opening of a huge number of companies and institutions, such as the University of Texas at Dallas, created a perfect environment for the calm but full of opportunities and activities living. Modern Richardson is home to lots of the world’s biggest telecommunications and networking corporations such as AT&T, Verizon, ZTE, etc.
