Walnut Hill & Midway,
Modern Mile Dallas
is a celebration of modern architecture
in one square milE
Imagine a home tour clustered within one walkable square mile! Some of the neighborhood’s original low slung Mid-Century Modern (MCM) dwellings were built in 1954 in conjunction with a nation-wide Parade of Homes. They received national publicity in Better Homes and Gardens, and in the local newspaper. More modern style houses were built, continuing into the ’60s and ‘70s. Most of those period authentic homes are intact today. In recent times, some of the original homes were renovated and expanded for modern living. Also there has been a resurgence of architecturally significant contemporary or modern style structures built, including some under construction.
Bordered by Royal Lane, Midway Rd, Walnut Hill Lane, and Marsh Lane, this quiet neighborhood is home to Joe’s Creek with its massive trees and wildlife. Numerous second generation homeowners continue to live in the area.
