Join us as we take a trip to the place that was once known as “Vegas Before Vegas”. Beulah Adams Marshall bought the land that is now known as Top O’ Hill Terrace along the Bankhead Highway in the early 1920s and opened a tea room and restaurant to serve Dallas and Fort Worth patrons. In the late 1920s, Fred and Mary Browning purchased the property and shortly began converting the facilities into a casino, adding an escape tunnel and secret room for hiding the gambling paraphernalia during raids. This popular spot attracted gamblers as well as visitors who were often unaware of the gaming activities. Today the property sits on the Arlington Baptist University. Come take a tour and learn about the history of Top O’ Hill Terrace.
