Your Home's Story

In some instances, knowing your home's history helps with your application to Landmark Commission for changes you might want to make to the exterior of the structure.  And sometimes it's just cool to know all about the place you call home!

Worley's Directory

To find the year your home was built, one resource is Worley's Directory.  This directory lists addresses as well as the residents who lived there along with their profession.  You will need to go through the directory looking for your address.  The earliest appearance of the address will help approximate the construction year of your home.  The Worley Directory is housed at the Dallas Public Library.
