John Neely Bryan – The Founder Of Dallas, Texas

In November 1841, the city of Dallas, Texas, was founded by John Neely Bryan, who settled on the east bank of the Trinity near a natural ford.. Bryan had picked the best spot for a trading post to serve the population migrating into the region. The ford, at the intersection of two major Indian traces, provided the only good crossing point for miles. 

Author’s Note:

In present day, John Neely Bryan’s log cabin is in downtown Dallas.
