East Dallas- M Streets-Vickery Place/ Forest Hills-Casa Linda

Welcome to M Streets-Vickery Place/Forest Hills-Casa Linda

Farmland was neatly subdivided in the 1910s and 1920s to create a few of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. The M Streets (also known as Greenland Hills) and Vickery Place have established conservation districts to preserve the tidy Tudors and Craftsman cottages that give the area its signature historic charm. While an easy six-mile commute to downtown, the Forest Hills and Casa Linda neighborhoods maintain a countryside feel with large lot sizes and mature trees. The sense of community among residents is a hallmark of the neighborhood and its location nestled along the southern end of White Rock Lake attracts many new residents each year.
