Office of Historic Preservation


The City of Dallas Landmark Districts are defined areas with a significant concentration of structures unified by their architectural style or related historical events. They are protected by historic district ordinances with preservation criteria, specific to each district, administered by the Dallas Landmark Commission. A Certificate of Appropriate​ness​ must be obtained before any work can begin on any property with a Landmark District.  The preservation criteria and design guidelines for each district are located in the district's ordinance.
