Centennial Photographs of Swiss Avenue Homes

Realtor Douglas Newby took photographs of every Swiss Avenue home during the centennial of Swiss Avenue so that you would have an opportunity to see this collection of architect-designed and architecturally significant homes in geographical order. You can scroll through and see the homes on each block on Swiss Avenue as if you are driving down the boulevard. Please contact Douglas Newby if you would like to find out about the nuance and comparative value of each Swiss Avenue block and each home.

The earliest homes built in 1905 in the Swiss Avenue Historic District are found in the original addition of Munger Place between the Swiss Avenue gates on Fitzhugh and Dumont. Homes continued to be built along the street in casual chronological order with the most recent homes built in the l930s at the LaVista boundary. The west side of the boulevard is narrower, as it was used as a private drive, and the east side of Swiss Avenue is wider because it was used as a public drive. Even today Swiss Avenue remains the street in Dallas most associated with mansions. Swiss Avenue is also synonymous with preservation as the Historic Preservation League, now Preservation Dallas, was formed simultaneously with Swiss Avenue becoming Dallas’ first Historic District in 1973.

Every photograph in this section was taken during the week of the 2005 Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Historic Home Tour celebrating the centennial of this historically significant neighborhood. These photographs represent 30 years of Swiss Avenue revitalization and restoration.
