Re: location of an old Dallas address

Gay, there is now only one street in Dallas County with that name: Forest Lawn Road.......in Balch Springs.

Balch Springs is Southeast of downtown Dallas, adjacent to Mesquite, and Interstate Loop 635 runs through it North-South. In 1954, I'm sure the area was considered a Rural Precinct of the County.

The Dallas Co. Appraisal Dist. indicates there are currently 69 residences on Forest Lawn Rd., but the house numbers must have changed since 1954, as there is no 326.

You can use one of the online map services and search for Forest Lawn in Balch Springs, to get a better idea of the actual location.

That's all I found; hope it is of some help.

Fred
