History of Dallas

Dallas was originally incorporated in 1856, and with over 1 million residents as of 2015, it is currently one of the highest-populated cities in the entire country. Deep Ellum, the Dallas neighborhood that hosts a plethora of arts and entertainment venues, originally became popular during the 1920's and 1930's as the prime jazz and blues hotspot in all the south. Today, its streets, sidewalks and tunnels are covered in murals. It's also home to hundreds of loft-living artists. The Dallas Cowboys joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960, and are now financially the most valuable sports franchise in the United States.
