In its 150-year history, Deep Ellum has gone from a freedman’s colony, to home of Dallas’s Black and Jewish immigrant communities, to a present-day booming industrial zone. Deep Ellum—“the soul of Dallas,” as it is sometimes called—is North Texas’s premier entertainment district: the place for jazz and blues, thriving businesses, and local artists. Deep Ellum today is one of the few neighborhoods in Dallas with most of its historic building stock intact despite major high-density mixed-use growth. Tour the area with the Deep Ellum Foundation and local developers to learn about the history of the district and how it balances mixed-use, dense growth and culture to retain its unique identity.
