Two Sides of Old Dallas
Just east of downtown Dallas is Swiss Avenue, an elegant residential street. The tree-lined street is lined with approximately 200 carefully preserved historic homes representing numerous architectural styles which include Mediterranean, Spanish, Georgian, Prairie, Craftsman, Neoclassical, Italian Renaissance, Tudor and Colonial Revival.The entire district, Swiss Avenue between Fitzhugh and LaVista, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on 28 March 1974.
On north side of downtown, tucked away in a new urban housing development just off McKinney Avenue are these early 20th century craftsman style bungalows. The must be the only "modest" turn of the century homes left in Dallas.
