Useful info:
Dallas owes its origin to John Neely Bryan, a farmer who in 1841 built himself a hut on the banks of the Trinity River in northeastern Texas (a replica can be seen in Dealey Plaza). Until after the Civil War, Dallas was overshadowed by its sister city Fort Worth, but after the coming of the railroad in 1873, it grew rapidly. Until WWII, the city's economy depended on grain, cotton, and oil, but post-war, it became home to numerous insurance corporations and banks, making it an important business and financial center - perfect fodder for that most famous of soap operas about power, money, and intrigue: Dallas. These days, the city is noted for its modern and postmodern architecture, as well as Gothic Revival architecture such as the Kirby Building (also of note is Swiss Avenue, home to a stretch of homes featuring architectural styles from Victorian to Neoclassical). Visitors can enjoy art institutions such as the Dallas Museum of Art, the Crow Collection of Asian Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the city is also home to numerous parks, providing ample opportunity for outdoor activities such as cycling, swimming, tennis, and golf.
