Old City Park
Old City Park occupies the site of Dallas' oldest park, established in 1876 as City
Park. As a museum of architectural and cultural history, it depicts North Central Texas
from the period of 1840-1910. The Dallas County Heritage Society was organized by a
group of concerned citizens in order to save the Millermore ante-bellum mansion. From
this effort has grown a partnership between the City of Dallas and the Dallas Country
Heritage Society which has resulted in a thirteen acre historical setting of restored and
refurbished structures, accredited by the American Association of Museums. Visitors
numbering over 30,000 tour the Park each year, as well as 15,000 area schoolchildren
who are treated to free admission and their own specially designed "Discovery Tour."
Set against the backdrop of the twentieth century architect of the Dallas skyline, this
beautiful and serene oasis shares the wonders of its past to all who are fortunate to enter.
