The Cedars area is an excellent example of how an urban neighborhood can go through many upturns and downturns in its lifespan. More importantly, it illustrates the power of mass transit to spur positive change.
During the city's early years, this southern Dallas neighborhood was named "Cedars" because of the magnificent forest of conifer trees. It later became one of the first suburbs of Dallas, filled with ornate Victorian homes. However, its status was short-lived, lasting only from about 1880-1890. Rapid industrial growth in downtown Dallas spilled over into Cedars and changed its initial residential character.
As the Cedars Station is the first DART Rail station adjacent to downtown, members of the community, business leaders, and others are hopeful that this new facility will further enhance neighborhood revitalization.

Series of three freestanding forms fabricated in sheet bronze. Ranges from 12' to 13' high and 4' to 5' in diameter at the base.
The abstract sculptures recall the conical form of cedar trees that once reigned in profusion around the community. The cones feature a decorative design, a reference to the ornate sensibility of the Victorian era. The sculptures deliberately use the downtown as a backdrop, symbolically linking the neighborhood to a new partnership with the Central Business District.
The adjacent parking garage serves as a headboard for the station and features a living wall of vines that frame the silver metallic canopies.
