The Mustangs is a beautiful sculpture that is a must see for anyone visiting Dallas for the first time. It is located only 10 to 15 minutes away from DFW airport. There is free parking right in front of the sculpture. It's just a quick little trip but represents a segment of the wonderful Texas culture and history. Children love seeing these large mustangs that appear to be running through the streams.

Approximately 200 freed slaves are buried in the cemetery, though many of these graves are unmarked

From the historical marker: African Americans came to this area as slaves of white settlers such as William Haley and William Borah before 1845. The land around this site was deeded to early white settler Chilton Smith in 1851. After the Civil War, many former slaves stayed in the area and formed a large African American settlement. In 1879, Minnie Shelton purchased 80 acres including this site for $130, and the Shelton family donated the land for use as a cemetery.

I have visited the Irving Convention Center since it first opened in 2011 and am still impressed with its spaciousness, beauty, views, and accessibility. It is very close to a DART rail station making for low-stress access from locations all around Dallas and even Fort Worth (via the TRE then switching to the DART yellow line). Parking is charged or can be incorporated into the rental of the venue.
