About Heritage Oak Cliff

Heritage Oak Cliff, founded as the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League, was formed in 1975 primarily to save Winnetka Heights from a demise that would have left an irreplaceable hole in Dallas’ history. Today, Winnetka Heights is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Oak Cliff and remains an integral part of the Dallas community.

Almost every street in Oak Cliff has a story to tell and showcases the great diversity of Dallas. Those who choose to settle here do so for Oak Cliff’s beauty and rich history. Many built large gorgeous homes designed by some of the most talented architects of the day. Others focused on smaller homes designed by planners and architects with an eye toward quality, durability and family life. Over time, styles continue to evolve, and new neighborhoods emerge to reflect those changes. Heritage Oak Cliff views all neighborhoods as partners in promoting Oak Cliff as a thriving community welcoming to all.

Today Heritage counts more than 30 member neighborhoods, stretching from Interstate 30 south to Camp Wisdom Road (See map below). From long established neighborhood associations to smaller neighborhood groups beginning their journeys, all contribute to the beauty, diversity, and vitality that is Oak Cliff. We have done our best below to capture a map of the neighborhoods.

For over 40 years, Heritage OC has produced the annual Old Oak Cliff Home Tour. 2021 saw the introduction and great success of our new event Passport Oak Cliff, which targets a more neighborhood participation and community building. By no means are we done with home tours, we are just evolving. The proceeds of the Home Tours and Passport Oak Cliff are used to grant awards to member neighborhoods for conservation, beautification and preservation projects and other projects that enhance each neighborhood.

Heritage Oak Cliff Map of Member Neighborhoods

The map below represents recent (September 2021) collaborative and research effort of our member Austin Miller. While the map is a work in progress, and ever changing, we heard the neighbors of Oak Cliff loud and clear recently, and made establishing a new more accurate map a priority. If your neighborhood is grey, then you do not have a membership in Heritage Oak Cliff, and we would love to help you change that. New member applications can start by reaching out to our and letting them know you want to become a member.
