Farmers and workers settled here during Reconstruction, and Queen City Heights continued to attract working-class African American families as Dallas grew throughout the 20th century. The district's growth helped spur the development of surrounding African American neighborhoods. The Dallas Historical Society periodically offers tours of the district. Exline Park, at the corner of Eugene and Latimer streets, is a nice stop for a picnic or rest.
