Junius Heights - Dallas Largest Historical District

What's not to like about Dallas's largest historical district boasting almost 800 homes? The gorgeous historical homes, the diverse neighborhood with wonderful people, all within close proximity to the city, White Rock Lake as well as shopping and activities in many areas of Dallas. You don't even have to get on the freeway to be in Uptown, downtown, or to tour the State Fairgrounds. The charm of living in a real neighborhood is just too special to be ignored. Inviting to everyone, an eclectic mix of populace live and call Junius Heights home. Walking distance to the Santa Fe Trail and White Rock Lake, the jewel of Dallas lakes, is also appealing for those who are looking for a home close to all the city of Dallas has to offer. 

Junius Heights was built at what was the eastern edge of the city of Dallas in the late 1910s and construction continued into the 1930s. Most of the houses are Craftsman and Prairie style bungalows with a smattering of other styles. The neighborhood was served by the Junius Heights streetcar line until streetcar service was discontinued in Dallas. 

The neighborhood was cut in two in the early 1970s when Abrams Road was extended from Junius St. to connect with Columbia Ave. The landmark Junius Heights columns were moved at the same time.

In 2010 Junius Heights was named "Best Place for Families" during its listing on This Old House's "Best Old House Neighborhoods 2010".[2]  Also in 2010, Junius Heights was designated a Preserve America Community which is given to neighborhoods that demonstrate a commitment to their heritage. 

Junius Heights is the largest collection of Arts and Crafts/Craftsman homes in the southwest, and includes Prairie and Tudor styles in a neighborhood of well over 800 homes in Old East Dallas, situated east of Munger Place.
