Swiss Avenue Historic District
This 22-block area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the homes represent several architectural styles, including Mediterranean, Spanish, Georgian, Prairie School and English Tudor. Approximately 200 carefully preserved and restored homes line Swiss Avenue. As modern amenities became necessities, water, sewage and telephone lines were installed in alleys to preserve the authentic architecture of the area. The district includes portions of Bryan Street, La Vista Avenue, Live Oak Street, Swiss Avenue and Bryan Parkway. The success of Swiss Avenue has inspired preservation in other Dallas neighborhoods as well, leaving the city with several historic districts, both residential and non-residential.One is free to tour the neighborhood during the day. 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 leaders who built them.
