About the Building
Probably the most photographed building in Sundance Square, this famous building features the enormous Chisholm Trail Mural, which was painted by Richard Haas in 1985.The mural pays homage to the legendary cattle drives of the late 19th century.
Painted in the trompe l’oeil style (French for “deceive the eye”), the mural is a popular tourist attraction and is now integrated into Sundance Square Plaza.
Jamba Juice is located on the ground floor, and radio stations KWFR 95.9 (The Ranch) and KTFW-FM (Hank FM) operate out of the building.
Formerly called the Jett Building, it was once home of the Northern Texas Traction Company, which operated the Interurban Railway with service to Dallas and Cleburne. The building was partially restored in 1985 and 1990, and fully restored in 2013 as part of Sundance Square Plaza.
Over the years, it’s been home to a candy factory, title company, sandwich shop, several restaurants, and a book/video store.
Some say the Chisholm Trail Mural Building is haunted: people who have worked in the building have reported seeing apparitions like a phantom woman and a pale cowboy dressed in black.
