In July 1872, the Houston & Texas Central Railroad arrived in downtown, attracting manufacturing companies whose warehouses defined the architecture of the West End; that architecture is still intact for locals and tourists to enjoy today.
There is no district in downtown Dallas that is easier to get to, from or around than the West End Historic District. With ample parking, main streets, side streets and highways leading in and out of the West End, it’s the perfect part of downtown to get to, park, enjoy and exit easily.
Like so many districts in larger cities, the West End Dallas is an ideal place to spend a long afternoon and evening OR to stop, shop, eat and then get on with your day.
