Beginning at Main Street Garden and its panoramic view of a time capsule of some of Dallas’ most important buildings, your trained tour guide will lead you on a walk and discussion of a variety of architectural icons, including the Adolphus Hotel, the Magnolia Building, the Statler Hilton, and the Wilson Building. Along the way, you’ll take a look at examples of Beaux Art, Art Deco, Post-Modern, Renaissance Revival and Victorian designs and how they were adapted specifically for a rapidly growing metropolis. Additionally, you’ll hear about some of the visionaries who made it all happen.
