Swiss Avenue Historic District

Swiss Avenue, formerly part of the Munger Place subdivision, contains approximately 200 homes representing a variety of historical revival, Prairie and Bungalow styles in intact and restored condition. The district is also known for its elegantly landscaped parkways and properties. This was the first local historic district designated in Dallas.
