Hall of State at Fair Park
(3939 Grand Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75210)
Join the Dallas Historical Society for this Brown Bag Lecture on Lost Sacred Spaces of Dallas by Bob Jaeger.
At the turn of the 20th century the churches and synagogues of Dallas were the most prominent features on the city’s early skyline. Today, many of these churches and synagogues have been lost or completely forgotten as Dallas as evolved and grown into a modern city. These sacred structures not only document the religious history of the city of Dallas but also highlight the work of the city’s early architects such as James Edward Flanders.
The presentation will be made by Bob Jaeger, President and co-founder of Partners for Sacred Places, and Alison Hernandez, Program Coordinator for Partners’ Texas office. Partners is the only national, nonsectarian, non-profit organization dedicated to the sound stewardship and active community use of America’s older religious properties.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
