|Of course the GPS took us via the interstates route, even though we were only about 4 miles away.|

|We found a parking spot along the street and paid the meter .25 cnts for 10 minutes. We wondered up this street and back the other direction looking for the visitor center. We finally found it in this building, "The Old Red Courthouse".|
Across the street from the Old Red Museum is this memorial for George Bannerman Dealey (1859-1946). Dealey was the long-time publisher of The Dallas Morning News. He used his influence to accomplish many goals but will always be remembered primarily for one of them. He crusaded for the redevelopment of a particularly blighted area near downtown Dallas. When the redevelopment, involving a large square located at the intersection of three major avenues, was completed, it was named Dealey Plaza in his honor. This site became known worldwide when, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while his motorcade drove through Dealey Plaza.
