An Argument for Dallas: 100 Years of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

This special exhibit at the Dallas Fed is a collaboration of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the Dallas Historical Society.

Learn about the arguments that civic leaders made on behalf of Dallas as they sought to win a reserve bank for the city. Examine the history of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and learn about the Bank's service to the Eleventh District and to the American people.

In November 2014, the exhibit moves to the Hall of State at Fair Park to be displayed by the Dallas Historical Society.
