Since its initial development in 1907, Mount Auburn has remained a stronghold for working class residents of East Dallas, consistently campaigning for the betterment of single-family homes, streets, and parks. As the population shifted from primarily Anglo to primarily Latino, new businesses and renovated homes have brought a new cultural diversity to the historic neighborhood. While not immune to issues that have negatively impacted other urban communities, Mount Auburn has rebounded from the suburban migration and subsequent crime spike to emerge as a stable, active East Dallas neighborhood.
Neighborhood Stories: Mount Auburn was filmed in Spring 2013 and first screened in the community on August 17, 2013. For photos of the event, visit: bcworkshop.org/bcW/neighborhood-stories-mount-auburn/
