Anchored by Baylor Medical Center, Baylor/Meadows is a distinctive East Dallas neighborhood. Founded to provide rent-free space for nonprofit organizations, the Wilson Historic District covers 22 acres of restored homes plus new construction. The Latino Cultural Center was designed by world-renowned architect Ricardo Legorreta and presents outstanding multidisciplinary contributions by Latino artists within a vibrant setting. The Swiss Avenue Historic District along the eponymous boulevard in Munger Place is an architectural showcase of individually designed homes covering multiple eras and styles, with several blocks listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Wilson Blocks (2800 and 2900) are named for famed architect Frederick Wilson. During the winter holidays, enjoy a drive or a leisurely walk past Christmas lights displays.
