With eighty acres of land, Irving grew from humble beginnings in 1903.
Over time the city grew, and in an effort to preserve its rich history, town officials designed the downtown area as the "Heritage District."
The Heritage District is lined with brick sidewalks perfect for a leisurely stroll and gives visitors abundant options for shopping, dining, and historic landmarks. Here are only a few suggestions you won't want to miss:
It was in 1912 when C.P. Schulze built the Heritage House for his new bride. Today, it is one of the oldest properties in Irving, donated to the city by the Schulze family in 1975 to be used as a model home for tours during the area's bicentennial celebration. The home is a Texas Historic Landmark, and visitors will find that it is filled with the couple's personal belongings and donated period antiques. To learn more, enjoy a tour on the first Sunday of each month from March through December.
Dedicated in 2003 to commemorate Irving's first one hundred years, Centennial Park features a history wall that highlights the city's significant milestones. Visitors can also explore paved trails around the lake and take a peek inside Bennett's Dog-Run Cabin.
Known as the best Italian restaurant in the area, Di Rosani's is a local neighborhood establishment that has welcomed hungry diners since 2015. It is celebrated for its quaint atmosphere, friendly service, and delicious meals served in generous portions. All of the menu items are homemade with choices that include meat lasagna, lobster ravioli, and Margherita pizza. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy delectable desserts such as cannoli and baklava.
