The streets we drive seem so familiar to us, but how much do we really know about the homes that border them? We might know Swiss Avenue was the first paved road in Dallas, but what about the quirks of buildings there: two stories at least, no homes facing a side street, no spec homes, a $10,000 build minimum (at the turn of the century). There’s Lakewood’s little sister, Hollywood Heights, full of protected Tudors. The late 1920s Greenway Parks of North Dallas features homes built around the style of English commons clusters and features work by O’Neil Ford, Charles Dilbeck and other noted architects. And South Boulevard-Park Row is a vibrant gem of Craftsman, bungalows and re-vival-style homes. From 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, learn more about these areas by attending the Historic Dallas Neighborhoods course offered on campus by SMU’s Continuing and Professional Education department. For just $39, get a virtual tour and a live lesson on the city’s rich housing and architectural history. To register, visit smu.edu/CAPE and search for the course code, 162IAH480-D.
