The Alexander Mansion of Dallas

In 1909, The Dallas Woman’s Forum was in need of a larger home. They had begun their work in a suite of rooms at 280 Elm Street, later moving to 1909 Commerce, then to the Methodist Publishing House, and finally to their own home at 806 South Akard. In 1930, they purchased the mansion on Ross Avenue, built by Mr. C.H. Alexander, at the cost of $125,000.00 in 1904, two years before The Dallas Woman’s Forum was organized.
