World Crossroads

The Linda and Mitch Hart World Crossroads Gallery: 1946 – 2007

Post-war Dallas identifies new directions and, following national tragedy, reinvents itself for the 21st century.

In the immediate post-war era, communities saw their boundaries expand dramatically, and once-sleepy county towns became boomtowns. The Metroplex blossomed from national significance to international prominence during this period. Dallas County became noted for a television show, professional sports and its concentration of Fortune 500 corporations. The future of Dallas County begins here.

What you’ll find in the World Crossroads Gallery:

  • Tom Landry’s trademark fedora
  • Memorabilia from past and present sports figures
  • Posters and films from Harlemwood, Dallas’ prominent African-American filmmaking center
  • Handcuffs worn by Lee Harvey Oswald
  • J.R. Ewing’s famous Stetson hat from the popular television show, Dallas
