What do you know about Oak Cliff’s Tenth Street Historic District?

The Texas Historical Commission would have you know more. Settled by former slaves following the American Civil War, it is considered “Oak Cliff’s most important African-American neighborhood,” according to Preservation Dallas.

This weekend, the district will receive a historic marker via the state historical commission’s “untold marker” program.

An unveiling of the Tenth Street freedman’s town historic marker and a ribbon cutting for the N.W. Harlee Childhood Center is at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 at 1216 E. Eighth.
