Interurban Building

1500 Jackson Street

The Interurban Building, also known as the Interurban Terminal Building, was built in 1915 and anchored an electric transportation network that was the largest in the state of Texas and the South, and the third largest in the United States. Bringing in hundreds of buyers from Waco, Denison, Denton, Fort Worth, and other cities, the interurban lines contributed to the development of Dallas as the "leading financial, wholesale, and distribution center of the Southwest" (Dallas Morning News, 1984: n.p.). The building was erected in the center of the Central Business District, and replaced three smaller interurban stations.
