Dealey Plaza is a city park in the West End district of downtown Dallas, Texas. It is sometimes called the "birthplace of Dallas". It also was the location of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963. The Dealey Plaza Historic District was named a National Historic Landmark in 1993 to preserve Dealey Plaza, street rights-of-way, and buildings and structures by the plaza visible from the assassination site, that have been identified as witness locations or as possible locations for assassins.
John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza
The memorial consists of an empty platform with "John Fitzgerald Kennedy" engraved along its side,surrounded by a square cement enclosure with two openings. The monument's designer, Philip Johnson, successfully conveyed his respect for the president: “a place of quiet refuge, an enclosed place of thought and contemplation separated from the city around, but near the sky and earth.”
Pioneer Plaza is a large public park located in the Convention Center District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). It contains a large sculpture and is a heavily visited tourist site. Adjacent to the plaza is the Pioneer Park Cemetery which features the Confederate War Memorial. Behind the Pioneer Square is a graveyard that is said to have buried the pioneers of the Midwestern United States in the early years. Later, this cemetery became part of the city center.
Dallas City Hall
Dallas City Hall is the seat of Dallas municipal government, located at 1500 Marilla in the Government District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). The current building, the city's fifth city hall, was completed in 1978 and replaced the Dallas Municipal Building. The inverted V-shaped body can form a large shadow, making the square in front of the City Hall a good outdoor space for people to stay. Viewed from the side, the City Hall is like the shape of a map of Texas.
