Freedman's Town Real Estate
The Freedman's Town area of Dallas has an interesting history, a new name, and offers a huge amount of different uses. Originally, Freedman's Town was actually outside of the city limits of Dallas and was the area where those who weren't welcome took up residence which made its way to being two parts at once, Little Mexico for the Hispanic community and Freedman's Town for the African-American community of freed slaves. What remains now is Freedman's Cemetery and the entire area has been renamed Uptown.
Uptown is now a large and bustling part of Dallas with a "new urbanist" scope and offering walking distance to just about anything you can think of. The area is full of large office buildings, residential towers, apartment complexes, retail shops, clubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, galleries and much more. It is now an upscale and highly popular area for work, play and living, especially for those who want to live within walking distance of everything they need including their office for work. The Uptown area of Dallas offers a stand out feeling from other areas, which is unique to Dallas due to the urban zoning and planning that took place as the city was growing and expanding into what it is today.
From a history of being the place for unwanted intruders of Dallas, to the newly built and busy area it is now, Freedman's Town went from a poor recently freed slave community to a major business and metro area of Dallas for the enticement and excitement of those who enjoy downtown business and the higher end urban living. With a variety of night life to enjoy and high rise living, the Uptown area of Dallas offers a great place for a business to move in or for residents to make their home and take advantage of all the area has to offer.
