The neighborhood of Bryan Place was originally named after the founder of Dallas, John Neely Bryan. The idea came from developer Fox and Jacobs, who desired a more family oriented, serene quality of living within a busy city, somewhere that was free from confines but allowed a slower pace of life. The result was the neighborhood, which today is a bright spot of Dallas, predicted for the vast development that followed in the past decades since its creation in the 1980’s.
