Archive photo of the Dallas Municipal Building

Also known as "Old City Hall" this famous landmark, built in the early 1900's, served as the Dallas City Hall until the opening of the new facility in 1978. Additionally, this was previously the site of the Dallas jail facility; and in 1963, Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald in the parking garage of this building. The City receives frequent requests for approval to use this building for movie filming. The original part of the structure featured in the photograph has historic designation and still houses the Municipal Court.
