Showcasing a skyline dominated by futuristic skyscrapers, Dallas is the second largest city in Texas and the ninth largest city in the United States. Originally populated by cattle and cowboys, this modern metropolis was founded as a trading post in 1846 and became a prominent center for business and industry after the discovery of oil in 1930. Dallas also gained tragic notoriety as the place of President John F. Kennedy's assassination while traveling by motorcade. It later received more positive acclaim through the extremely popular television show of the same name which ran from 1978 to 1991.
