Downtown Tips (28)

The Farmstead--Dallas Heritage Village

A small pathway leads to this home built in the winter of 1845-46 that has been relocated from where DFW airport sits now. It is an example of a dog-trot house and has been erected as part of a small farm complete with detached kitchen and cellar house.

A dog-trot house is actually two log-rooms separated by an open breezeway, but connected by a common roof. This dwelling was originally a log cabin, but as the owner grew more prosperous was clad with clapboard siding.

A blacksmith shop, feed shed, animal barn, outhouse, small family cemetery, herb garden, vegetable garden and field for crops are situated on the grounds. The barn currently is home to several chickens, a sheep and cow--all very laid back and mellow creatures.

There were several owners of this home, the most prominent was General Richard Montgomery Gano and his wife, Mattie.

Dallas Symphony

The Morton Meyerson center is a great place to go and hear the Dallas Symphony. The building is an architechtual marvel and there isn`t a bad seat in the house, of course it doesn`t compare to a Kid Rock concert but it is a nice change.

Police Memorial

This monument was built in memorial to fallen police officers. It's unusual design is in keeping with the design of City Hall which sits just across the road.
One of the features is the fact that natural light is used to cast images of the officers badge numbers onto the pavement below.

Skyline view

Dallas has the most beautiful skyline...Im not just saying that! It is awesome, but especially at night...go and see! One of the best views is driving south on I-35E (coming from the north obviously). Continue driving as you feel like youre being swallowed up by the big city. Kewl.

George Bannerman Dealey

The statue of George Dealey stands in the area which was named after him and now infamous - 'Dealey Plaza'. He was editor and owner of the Dallas Morning News.

In the late 1920's George led a crusade to re-route the Trinity River away from the downtown area in an attempt to avoid the flooding problems which occurred every year. The Trinity River now flows one mile away from this site.

Something Old, Something New

Downtown Dallas, though deserted other than during the work day, is a good contrast between old and new. I was surprised to see many older buildings amongst all the new skyscrapers. So perhaps in addition to seeing the Sixth Floor, maybe stroll a few blocks here and there so see some of downtown.

The city of Dallas from a view...

There are so many pics I can get of the city, I will try to add more with time.

Funny, when you live in a city, you take it for granted and see it every day.

Dallas is a Beautiful moderen city and no you will not find cowboys on the streets of Dallas.

Downtown Walk

Walking around Downtown Dallas; Founder's Plaza
Dallas isn't like other big cities in that not a lot of people live downtown; it's mainly for business or government...but they're starting to put up apartments and such now. There are many skyscrapers downtown but, if you look, you'll find some historic buildings. In the Founder's Plaze, you'll see the old red court house, a settler's log cabin, a JFK memorial, and Thanksgiving Square: http://www.thanksgiving.org/
