Dealey Plaza Changes To-Date

Dallas now sits in the area of the “Three Forks” of the Trinity River. The Trinity roams its way up from the Gulf of Mexico, and Galveston Bay, to an area just south and east of present day Dealey Plaza. At this point, the East Fork of the Trinity River splits off and heads north. The rest of the Trinity curves west and north to a point less than a mile northwest of Dealey Plaza, where the river again divides into the Elm Fork and the West Fork of the Trinity.

Dallas - Ft. Worth is the largest metropolitan area in the United States not built on a navigable waterway. The US metropolitan areas larger than it include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, and Detroit, all of which have either one of the “Great Lakes” or a saltwater harbor. And unlike Denver, Dallas - Ft. Worth does not have mountain passes close by as a reason for its existence. However, what Dallas does have is “Austin Chalk”, or limestone.
