It takes only a brief drive past the stately homes that line Preston Hollow's winding tree-lined streets to understand the neighborhood's appeal. But the remarkable arc of its history remains largely unknown, even to lifelong residents. Glimpse the rich farmland that stunned Ira DeLoache on his fortuitous 1922 flight over the countryside. Revisit the early days of the pre-annexation town, when citizens relied on septic tanks and a volunteer fire department. Stop by institutions like the Coffee Cup or the Northwest Hi-Way Drive-In Theatre and attend Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church's first service. From the architectural legacy of Charles Dilbeck to the destructive path left by the 2019 tornado, author Jack Walker Drake relates the heritage of a premier Dallas neighborhood.
