Which Oak Cliff buildings should make the ‘most endangered’ list?


Preservation Dallas expects to release a new “most endangered” architecture list in September.

The nonprofit named a couple of Oak Cliff buildings in its 2010 list: Oak Cliff Christian Church, which was demolished that year, and the old Adamson High School, which is still standing, although the historic part is not in use.

Which Oak Cliff buildings should make the 2015 Preservation Dallas list? There are only seven buildings in our neighborhood that have protected historical status with the City of Dallas.

If there is a neglected Oak Cliff building you love, nominate it for the list by Friday, Aug. 14.

    Jeffery technically speaking most of Oak Cliff is not Oak Cliff. But having been born to OC in the early 50’s, Ft. Worth Ave was always considered Oak Cliff to the indigenous. The area where the Alamo Courts was located was technically in Western Heights but just as much a part as Kessler, Stevens, Kidd Springs or Elmwwod. I would hate to think The Torch, Sivils, The Bronco Bowl and others all along Ft. Worth Ave were not in Oak Cliff .

    My first thought was did they use that picture intentionally to show what a joke Preservation Dallas is?

    An interesting question framed above a now-demolished motel that wasn’t IN Oak Cliff at all….that’s Fort Worth Avenue, which is WEST DALLAS
