Oak Cliff National Register Historic Districts starting clockwise at the far upper left hand corner are Kessler Park, Miller-Stemmons, Lake Cliff, Tenth Street, Lancaster Commercial, Bishop Arts, Winnetka Heights, Rosemont Addition and Kings Hwy.
There are two historic classifications that an area can be awarded: the National Register is a Federal program administrered by the Department of Interior and managed by the state primarily for the purpose of Federal Tax Credits. The Second is the local City of Dallas Historic Landmark program. This also comes with tax incentives but also has the strictest rules regarding demolition. Restriction of the demolition of historic properties only comes with local historick landmark designation... period.
Of the above districts, only Winnetka, Lake Cliff and Tenth St. carry this stricter interpretation. Kings Hwy, Bishop Arts. and Kessler are Conservation Districts which encourage saving structures but do not out right forbid demolition.
