Dallas City is named after Vice President George W. Dallas who served under President James Polk. Dallas City is located along the eastern shore of the Mississippi River almost directly across from Ft. Madison, Iowa, 170 miles North of St. Louis, Missouri and 280 Miles Southwest of Chicago, Illinois.

The first house built in Dallas City was a log house built on the riverfront by Israel Atherton. The house is still standing and is still occupied. The official town was laid out in April of 1848 by John M. Finch and Dr. John Newland.

The first Church in Dallas City was built a stone by the United Brethren. In 1855 Jacob Garrett bought 89 acres of land in and around Dallas City and started the United Brethren Church. He went back east to get money for the Church, but in some way was swindled out of the money so they could not go on with the Church. The building was then used for the Dallas City Opera House, being called Riverside Hall.

Dallas City has a population of about 1300. It is located in the main line of the Santa Fe Railroad and on a branch line of the C. B. & Q. Rail line. The shipping of moldings sand, headed by Homer Berg is major industry. A new grain elevator was completed around 1940 with the capacity around 18,000 bushels of grain. It is working day and night loading barges in the Mississippi River.

The Pioneer lumber of Dallas City is an outgrowth of Mr. Blacks lumberyard. The Pioneer lumber company has lumber yards in number of towns in Illinois and a lumberyard and head office in Dallas City. There is one newspaper, a very fine community high school, and five churches.
