Dallas: Queen City Heights Historic District

Farmers and workers settled here during Reconstruction, and Queen City Heights continued to attract working class African American families as Dallas grew throughout the 20th century. The district’s growth helped spur the development of surrounding African American neighborhoods. When touring the district, Exline Park, at the corner of Eugene and Latimer streets, is a nice stop for a picnic or rest.
