Dallas homes for sale put you right in the middle of one of the most vibrant communities in the United States. Dallas is rich in history, and it looks to the future, too: It has employment opportunities, schools, and the world-class amenities you'd expect from a great state capital.
Our real estate agents know everything is bigger in Texas. Whenever you're in Texas, the past comes alive. This state--the biggest in the lower 49--has some of the most sophisticated cities around, but it also captures the frontier spirit that first made it special. Even big cities like Dallas still maintain a considerable number of historic sites.
One great example is the Museum of Dallas County History and Culture.
It's the kind of place where you'll feel like you've just stepped into the story of Texas, from pre-settlement to the Old West and beyond.
Hit the Trail with the Old Red: The Top Museum of Dallas County History and Culture
The Old Red is one of the flagship museums in a state known for them. Standing right in the heart of Dallas at Dealey Plaza, the Old Red itself is a fascinating historic structure. Built back in 1892, it was initially a courthouse. Now, it stocks four floors of interactive exhibits.
Old Red is perched at one of the most momentous crossroads anywhere in Texas. It's just steps from the JFK Memorial, the Sixth Floor Museum, and the city's historic West End. Students, locals, and guests from all over the world make the Big Red part of their educational tour of beautiful Dallas.
The Museum--open from 9 am to 5 pm daily--has all of the following:
- The stunning Old Red Clock Tower, still preserved and keeping time to this day.
- Four terracotta wyverns – two of them restored, two still completely original.
- The Hatton Sumners Restored Courtroom with judge's bench, the jury box, and seating.
- The striking Grand Staircase, completely restored to its original 1892 appearance.
