"A perfect place to raise kids in This Old House - in the middle of the city"

The Junius Heights neighborhood was originally built around 1910 in what was then eastern edge of the city of Dallas, Texas. Today, it is the largest historic district in the city and it features craftsman homes and Prairie-style bungalows that have for the most part been well preserved and maintained. Recently, the neighborhood association was able to gain a historic designation, which will help to further preserve and rebuild the area.

The Junius Heights columns, long a landmark for the area, was moved in the 1970's when the neighborhood was cut into two pieces by the extension of Abrams Road and still stands to this day at the entrance to the neighborhood. The neighborhood was honored in 2010 by being named the “Best Place for Families” by This Old House's “Best Old House Neighborhoods.” Junius Heights is close to virtually everything in Dallas and is close to the ornate mansions on Swiss Avenue, a popular place for tourists. It's also just south of the Lower Greenville Avenue area of clubs and fine dining, one of the most popular destinations in the entire city.

The Junius Heights neighborhood has much to offer to people in all walks of life.
Pros
  • close to many fine dining options
  • friendly neighborhood
  • newly designated historic area
Cons
  • heavy traffic area
  • city smog on hot and still days
