Old East Dallas

Home / Old East Dallas

Sought out for a mix of casual, foodie-centric restaurants and bars alongside older houses, this area rallies around its fun, all-inclusive spirit. You’ll hear it referred to as Lower Greenville, the M Streets, and Knox-Henderson, but it’s made up of lots of neighborhoods—many designated as conservation districts of Tudor homes and cottages. Historic mansions on Swiss Avenue neighbor two-story Prairie houses of Munger Place Historic District. Renovated 60’s apartment buildings line Gaston Avenue. Most everything off Ross Avenue is being rehabilitated. Families blend with young singles. Schools are community supported. It’s known for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Granada Theater, and joyous eating and drinking.
