John Neely Bryan:  The Founder of Dallas by Steven R. Butler

March 30, 2017

Hall of State in Fair Park, 3939 Grand Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75210

Doors open at 6:00pm, Presentation at 6:30pm


Join the Dallas Historical Society, Dallas Heritage Village, the Old Red Museum, and Preservation Dallas for a special book event!

John Neely Bryan: The Father of Dallas is not only the story of the founding father of one of America’s largest cities but also the story of the individuals, largely journalists, who wrote about Bryan in the past. Drawing both on their work and his own original research, Butler has managed to produce a scholarly but readable narrative that forms the most complete picture of the enigmatic Dallas founder that’s been published to date. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author at the event.

Free Admission. RSVP here.
