To make the route through Dallas more palatable to the railroad officials, the city business leaders, with Alex Sanger as chairman of the finance committee, subscribed $100,000 and supplied a wide right-of-way, now Pacific Avenue, Page 11 for the Texas & Pacific Railway to move through town on February 22, 1873.
