    John Neely Bryan Cabin

    The John Neely Bryan Cabin is a small cabin that was built in 1841 by John Neely Bryan who is credited with founding the City of Dallas. Whether Bryan actually lived in this cabin or another that he also built is a hot topic for Dallas Historians.

    It's a nice little cabin that is a good example of 1800's architecture in the American West. Located in the Dallas County Historical Plaza, it's dwarfed by modern buildings. It's the seed that Dallas grew from.

    Address: Corner of Main and Record Streets.

    Directions: The Cabin is ini the Dallas Historical Plaza, a short walk from Kennedy Plaza and the 6th Floor Museum.

    John Neely Bryan's Cabin

    This little log cabin is a replica of the first house in Dallas which was built and owned by one of the founders of Dallas, John Neely Bryan.
    His cabin, built in 1841, was originally located less than a quarter of a mile from this new site and it was largely destroyed by a flood in the late 1800's. The cabin stands in Dallas County Historical Plaza (aka Founders Plaza) and is in rememberance to the early days of the city.

    Address: Elm and Market St
