Neoclassical Style, 1890. Located at 2101 Ross Avenue, this was the original home of Col. A.H. Belo, founder of The Dallas Morning News, who moved to Dallas from Galveston after the paper's establishment. The house, now the home of the Dallas Bar Association and the Dallas Bar Foundation, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (docent tours of the building are given the second Tuesday of every month, except summer months, from 10-12). Constructed around 1890, its facade was remodeled at the turn of the century. The building for several decades was the home of the Loudermilk-Sparkman Funeral Home. When Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were ambushed and shot to death in Louisiana in 1934, Clyde Barrow's body was placed on view in this building and was visited by an estimated 30,000 people.
