Dallas, Texas


Dallas was founded by John Neely Bryan in 1841. It was apparently named after George M. Dallas, the vice-president of the United States at the time. Dallas soon became a commercial center of the cotton, grain, and buffalo trade. After oil was discovered in 1930, it became the center of the nation’s oil trade. Dallas was the site of the 1963 assassination of president John F. Kennedy and the ensuing murder of the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Today, Dallas is a major center for computer tech-nology development, telecommunications and banking. Many major companies are headquartered in and around Dallas such as Texas Instruments, Exxon-Mobil, and JC Penney. In addition, Dallas has more shopping centers per capita than any other city in America.
