Join us for a tour of the George Dahl designed Dallas Morning News Building on May 21st!
About this event
Designed for Dallas’ oldest continuing newspaper, this stately five story building of granite and sandstone originally housed state of the art 650 ton presses that were nearly three stories tall. Built in 1949, George Dahl designed a building that perfectly expressed the forward thinking ideas of George Bannerman Dealey, civic leader and the newspaper’s early publisher. Etched in granite on the front elevation is Dealey’s call for journalists to “Build the news upon the rock of truth…” Dahl’s elegant, yet solid design echoes that. Our hosts Matthews Southwest and Robert Decherd will tell us about the iconic building’s past, present and future as we tour inside.
