The North Dallas community of Preston Hollow was incorporated as a municipality in 1939 before it was annexed into Dallas in 1945. It was named for the densely wooded area of creeks and hollows that extended westward from Preston Road.
The Preston Hollow area is home to such notables as former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush; Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks owner; H. Ross Perot, business man and former presidential candidate; Alex Rodriguez, professional baseball player; and T. Boone Pickens, oil tycoon.
The schools in Preston Hollow are part of the Dallas Independent School District. Preston Hollow Elementary serves grades K-6. Benjamin Franklin Middle School serves grades 7-8. Hillcrest High School serves grades 9-12. In addition to the public schools, private schools abound since most of the residents choose to send their children to private schools.
Things to Do
There are several attractions in Preston Hollow including an Asian Art Museum and the Amon Carter museum. There’s even a dinosaur museum for kids! Preston Hollow Park is a great place for children to play. There is a giant climbing dome, swings, slides, monkey bars, and a merry-go-round, and for safety, the play areas are filled with sand. It also has tennis courts and a baseball diamond for kids of all ages. And, of course, Preston Hollow is also just a short drive away from Dallas, so it is convenient to some big city fun, too!
