Scope and Content
Collection documents the annexations of Clifton Place, Oak Lawn Heights, Maplewood, Love Dale Numbers 1 and 2, Brookfield, and portions of Love Field between 1929 and 1934. The neighborhood additions are all located in the Oak Lawn/North Dallas area. Annexation is defined as the legal incorporation of territory outside of a municipality to expand the municipality’s borders.
The bulk of the collection is citizens’ petitions requesting annexation and the rest is correspondence relating to the presentation of a proposed annexation ordinance to the Dallas Board of Commissioners. Of historic note is a June 1929 letter from two commissioners to the City Attorney urging the speeding up of annexations “in order to make Dallas take first rank in population among the cities of Texas.”
The collection is arranged by subject.
Permission to publish, reproduce, distribute, or use by any and all other current or future developed methods or procedures must be obtained in writing from the Dallas Municipal Archives.
