Swiss Avenue Historic District

The Swiss Avenue Historic District is one of the finest early 20th century neighborhoods in the Southwest. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, approximately 200 carefully preserved and restored homes representing several architectural styles including Mediterranean, Spanish, Georgian, Prairie, Craftsman, Neoclassical, Italian Renaissance, Tudor and Colonial Revival are in the district.

Originally developed in 1905 by R.S. and Collett Munger, the district forms part of the original 300-acre Munger Place Development. The area's proximity to downtown Dallas was part of the Mungers' vision to create a neighborhood whose residents would become involved with diverse facets of urban life. The designation as Dallas' first historic district over 30 years ago has ensured the preservation of this vision. The success of The Swiss Avenue Historic District has inspired preservation in numerous Dallas neighborhoods - both residential and non-residential. The Dallas Museum of Art offers a guided tour on cassette tape, complete with directions as well as interesting facts about the homes and the local civic and business leaders who built them.
