In 1977, the Colonel's granddaughter, Helen Belo Morrison, agreed to sell the property to the Dallas Bar Association. She had been born in the house in 1902 and felt the Bar's plan to restore the home as the Dallas Legal Education Center was in accordance with family principles and feelings. The Dallas Bar Association connected the historic home and the chapel with an expansive, glass-roofed atrium.
In 2003, The Dallas Bar Association victoriously concluded its capital campaign which resulted in the addition of the exquisite Pavilion. Once again, the past was linked to the present and future through innovative design and distinctive architecture.
Behind the stately limestone porticos, glimmering shop windows and twinkling marquees that line Main Street, you’ll find the neighborhood’s original foundation matches its opulent façade. Downtown Dallas isn’t just a trendy modern hub—these streets are deeply rooted in sophisticated style and theatrical entertainment. Back in the day, theatre and fashion not only went hand in hand here, but gave the neighborhood a glow that rivaled the glamour of Broadway.
Streamlined railways and streetcars ushered in legendary performers, silver screen stars and the audiences who came to see them. Magnificent theatres sat alongside opulent opera houses. Tailoring all of it to the stylish tastes of the times was the landmark Titche-Goettinger department store. By setting up shop in the middle of the social hub of the city, Edward Titche and Max Goettinger quickly made a name for themselves while keeping pace with the budding Vaudeville acts that stole the headlines. Built on the former site of the Dallas Opera House, their new flagship store was perfectly situated for eager fashionistas flocking to downtown from surrounding suburbs to shop the rousing scene.
With a three-ton neon sign on Elm Street, an imaginative refrigerated fur coat vault and an unheard-of price tag of $2.5 million, Titche-Goettinger’s seven-story spectacle spared no expense on state-of-the-art technology. The store was a showpiece of modern design and Art Deco decor, with fixtures of brass and white milk glass, terrazzo floors and diagonal corner windows that caught the eyes of all who strolled by. Inside, shoppers were met with an impressive six floors of merchandise tailored to fit almost any need, from wigs and furs on the second floor to an after-shopping snack in the Tea Room. So, whether guests were looking for a head-to-toe look for the opera that night or wanted an updated ‘do from the in-store beauty salon, Titche-Goettinger had it all…
Right down to the finishing touches. Above each display window on the exterior are symbols representing various retail trades. At its St. Paul entrance, inlaid medallions of cotton and wheat signify the two core crops of Texas. At its Elm Street entrance, timber and manufacturing; and, at the Main Street entrance, cattle and oil. Color-changing nightlight sconces added a “big city” feel to the town’s growing skyline—that nowadays fits right in with downtown’s glowing landscape.
A few blocks down, flickering marquee lights and the sounds of Wurlitzers used to fill the streets as The Melba, Tower, Palace, Rialto Capitol, Fox and Strand overflowed with audiences in their latest Nardis fashions each night. Although grandest of all on Theatre Row was the Majestic—the only one standing today. Its baroque Corinthian columns, egg-and-dart molding, crystal chandeliers, marble fountain, black and white marble floors and twin marble staircases complete what is a lasting and illustrious monument to Vaudeville.
So, you see, between the marvelous shopping meccas and distinguished downtown stages, the groundwork was paved long ago for Dallas to shine as a fashion capital and grand statement of style, one still standing tall in a spotlight all its own.

Diecezja Dallas jest diecezją Kościoła rzymskokatolickiego w północnej części stanu Teksas.HistoriaDiecezja została kanonicznie erygowana 15 lipca 1890 przez papieża Leona XIII. Wyodrębniono ją z terenów ówczesnej diecezji diecezji Galveston. Pierwszym ordynariuszem został kapłan pochodzenia irlandzkiego z diecezji Erie Thomas Francis Brennan (1853-1916). Diecezja kilkakrotnie traciła część terytoriów, rosnąca liczba katolików w regionie powodowała bowiem rozrastanie się struktur kościelnych w Teksasie. Za 43 letniej kadencji bpa Josepha Lyncha powstały diecezje: El Paso, Amarillo i Austin. W latach 1953-1969 diecezja Dallas nosiła nazwę diecezja Dallas-Fort Worth. 9 sierpnia 1969 po ustanowieniu nowej diecezji Fort Worth, diecezja Dallas powróciła do starej nazwy.OrdynariuszeThomas Francis Brennan (1890-1892)Edward Joseph Dunne (1893-1910)Joseph Patrick Lynch (1911-1954)Thomas Kiely Gorman (1954-1969)Thomas Tschoepe (1969-1990)Charles Grahmann (1990-2007)Kevin Farrell (2007-2016)

Assassination of John F. Kennedy Distance: 1.0 miCompetitive Analysis 411 Elm Street Dallas, TX 75202
L’assassinat de John Fitzgerald Kennedy, trente-cinquième président des États-Unis, eut lieu le vendredi à Dallas (Texas) à CST, soit UTC. Après que le cortège présidentiel eut traversé à vitesse réduite le centre de la ville et alors que la voiture présidentielle, décapotée, passait sur Dealey Plaza, John F. Kennedy fut mortellement blessé par des tirs d'arme à feu. Quelques heures après la fusillade, un homme, Lee Harvey Oswald, fut arrêté dans un cinéma pour avoir tué un policier. Identifié comme un des employés du dépôt de livres, lieu dont des témoins ont perçu des tirs sur le cortège, et où l'on a retrouvé, au cinquième étage du bâtiment, un fusil à lunette lui appartenant, il fut considéré par la police de Dallas comme le suspect de l'assassinat du président. Deux jours après, lors de son transfert à la prison de Dallas, il fut à son tour assassiné par Jack Ruby, un propriétaire de boîte de nuit.Afin de dissiper les doutes et interrogations concernant un complot d'assassinat, Lyndon Johnson nomma une commission d'enquête chargée de faire la lumière sur les faits. Les conclusions de la Commission Warren, établissant la seule culpabilité d'Oswald dans l'assassinat, n'empêchèrent pas les contestataires et critiques. Ceux-ci se focalisant sur la non prise en compte de témoignages et de pièces du dossier, ainsi que sur la théorie de la balle unique, selon laquelle une seule balle avait causé trois blessures en traversant les corps de Kennedy et du gouverneur Connally. Les conclusions officielles furent aussi remises en cause lors de l'enquête du procureur Jim Garrison, aboutissant à un procès retentissant mettant en accusation l'homme d'affaire Clay Shaw pour conspiration d'assassinat. En 1976, une seconde commission d’enquête, le House Select Committee on Assassinations, fut chargée de réexaminer les pièces et éléments sur l'assassinat de Kennedy. Tout en confirmant l'essentiel des conclusions du rapport Warren, elle conclut cependant à la présence d'un second tireur, et par conséquent à la possibilité d'un complot.

Kennedy fue mortalmente herido por disparos mientras circulaba en el coche presidencial en la Plaza Dealey. Fue el cuarto presidente de EE.

Una de ellas concluyó que Oswald actuó solo y otra sugirió que actuó al menos con otra persona más. El asesinato todavía está sujeto a especulaciones, siendo origen de un gran número de teorías conspirativas.
