Southfork Ranch (Duncan Acres)

-A A +A
1970. 3700 Hogge Dr.

A Greek Revival ranch on the prairie and a family of wheelin’ and connivin’ big hats and big hair was a mirage that brought Dallas into the national and international limelight. The exterior views of the iconic house were filmed for the popular Dallas television series (1978–1991) although most of the show’s interiors were shot on Hollywood sets. The ranch became a tourist attraction and now prospers as a meeting and special events destination.
