Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover

Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover
One of Dallas’ most recognizable landmarks recently received a major upgrade.


“While the exterior of Ebby’s Little White House at the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road still looks very familiar to the thousands of people who drive by daily, inside our valued clients, Associates and staff members are enjoying a brand-new, beautiful environment,” says Keith Newman, the office’s sales manager.


When the Little White House was built several miles north of downtown Dallas in 1926 it was surrounded only by fields. By 1939, enough people lived nearby – almost 800 – that the area incorporated as the Town of Preston Hollow and the building briefly doubled as its town hall.


Ebby Halliday bought the property in 1964 for approximately $100,000 and spent almost $50,000 repairing and remodeling the structure before making it her signature office.


While it’s the oldest building for miles around, Ebby’s Little White House today features a just-completed, beautiful interior with the latest technology. Below are just a few recent photos taken recently inside this Dallas landmark.
