Harry Hines Boulevard
It was one of the very first 'highways' in Texas, and is named for Harry Hines in honor of his work helping to get roads paved in this part of the state. Harry Hines served on the Texas Highway Commission from Feb. 15, 1935 to April 11, 1941 and for the first two years as its chair according to the records at the Texas Department of Transportation.
Harry Hines Boulevard forms the main part of the route taken by the Kennedy motorcade to Parkland Memorial Hospital immediately after the assassination shooting in November, 1963. It is home to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Today, the Harry Hines area is home to a wholesale district filled with minority owned wholesale warehouses. One stretch of it is well known for its raffish street activity of hustlers, drug peddlers and prostitution.
The entire road is located in Dallas County, Texas
