Historical Background

Junius Heights was developed by C.H. Munger. The development was created on the eastern edge of the city of Dallas in 1906. Known for its trademark columns at the entrance of the development as well as its architecturally important craftsman and prairie style bungalows, Junius Heights prospered. By the twenties it had streetcar service and paved roads. The neighborhood suffered a brief decline during the fifties and sixties until the Junius Heights Neighborhood Association had the area declared a Historic District.
