If you are walking from downtown toward Dealey Plaza you might like to seek out this little cabin for a quick snapshot. Its worn timbers have a lot of character but it is disappointing that there are no views of the interior.

Actually we were walking back from the JFK Memorial to Dealey Plaza when we came upon this cabin. Glad it's being preserved.

It's well preserved and the park is very nice but you'll learn more from Wikipedia. The building is no more exciting up close than in the photos you see here but it is good for a photo op. I would suggest that if you are...More

Founder’s Plaza contains a replica of the tiny, one-room house of Tennessee trader John Neely Bryan, who founded Dallas in the early 1840s. It’s only fitting that his cabin (which once served as the court house), be on display in a lovely little park smack...More
