Village of Dallas City

History

Also on the Heritage Trail, just five miles south of Lomax, is Dallas City. Dallas City is uniquely situated in both Henderson and Hancock Counties. Experience the grandeur and opulence of the formidable Burg House, once home to the L. Burg family, manufacturers of “Fine Carriages and Vehicles” around 1910. And the venerable old Dallas City High School building, often referred to affectionately as “the Castle” indicates the community’s appreciation and eye for distinctive architecture was more than a fluke.
