Then & Now

1919 - Sunken Living Room 6119 Bryan Parkway
2019 - Sunken Living Room 6119 Bryan Parkway

Homes in the Swiss Avenue Historic District have always been known for their distinctive features. Here’s one example: The invention of the sunken living room is generally credited to Bruce Goff, an architect from Kansas who incorporated the feature into a home he designed in 1927. However, the sunken living room at 6119 Bryan Parkway, built in 1919 by DeWitt & Lemmon Architects, predates Goff’s design by 8 years, making it possibly the first sunken living room built in an American home.

THEN: Dining Room at Aldredge House - 5500 Swiss
NOW: Dining Room at Aldredge House - 5500 Swiss

As Dallas' first historic house museum, the Aldredge House at 5500 Swiss Avenue is one of the city's only surviving examples of a fully intact, early 20th Century home. The house has been preserved, both inside and out, and still maintains its original interiors – from its walnut-paneled formal rooms to it's marble-clad bathrooms. The Aldredge House played a significant role in the founding of the Swiss Avenue Historic District and stands today as the centerpiece of our neighborhood.
