"One of Dallas' most historic neighborhoods"

Designated as a U.S. Historic District and Dallas Landmark, Munger Place was the first deed-restricted neighborhood in all of Texas. It was home early in the 20th Century to stately two-story prairie-style mansions that fell into disrepair after the Great Depression. Starting in the 1970's, the neighborhood was lovingly restored to most of its former glory. Swiss Avenue in the heart of the neighborhood, is one of the most picturesque streets in the city with its beautiful million dollar turn of the 20th Century mansions and you can take a tour of these homes and attend a neighborhood arts festival that celebrates the historic architecture and art of the neighborhood.

Now this is once again a great place to raise a family while being close to Downtown Dallas and all kinds of other area attractions. It's just south of the Lower Greenville Avenue entertainment district, which has some of the best fine dining and nightlife options in the city of Dallas. The neighborhood is served by the Dallas Independent School District and there are also several excellent private schools in the area.

Munger Place Historic District is a great place to raise a family and enjoy being part of the storied history of this region.
