Munger Place was established in 1905 by Robert Munger as one of Dallas's first suburbs, and was originally intended to be one of the most exclusive communities in the city. Munger Place became the very first deed-restricted neighborhood in Texas. By the 1960s many of the nicer houses in the area had been torn down or condemned. Starting in the 1970s, however, Munger Place began to be rediscovered, as enterprising individuals recognized the historic architecture and large spaces behind the neighborhood's veneer. The Munger Place Historic District is now recognized by the United States National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the largest collections of Prairie-style homes in America. Each year the neighborhood holds a home tour and art festival that attracts fans of historic architecture and independent artists.
