Sometimes in the course of finding homes to feature through the week, we end up traveling down a bit of a wormhole when the abode’s history comes up. But our trip to the past for the history of this historic downtown Dallas loft was the unusual for a Tuesday Two Hundred.
We first found this unit in 509 Elm Street and fell in love with all the touches that make a loft condo charming — the exposed brick and beams, the concrete floors, the tons of light.
But when you know a building is likely historic, it almost behooves you to go look up what you can about that history — so we did just that.
Although the listing says it was built in 1930, other sourcing has its build date as 1901, 1906, and 1925.
