Peak’s Suburban Historic District

Peak’s Suburban Historic District developed over a period of years with four distinct architectural styles: Queen Anne Victorian, Prairie, Craftsman, and Modern Contemporary. Large country estates were first built  from 1855 to 1890.  Victorian houses were popular in the neighborhood  from 1890 to 1905.  Prairie and Craftsman homes were abundant from 1905 to 1920. In addition, examples of streetcar apartments from the 1920’s  are also present in the area. This is Dallas’ 14th historic district and was adopted in 1995. This neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of Victorian homes in Dallas.
