The Jewish immigrants who wrote some of the most important retail stories in Dallas history (Neiman Marcus, Sanger Harris, Volks Brothers) took root in North Texas via varied routes of entry. Until the early 1900s, nearly all Jewish immigrants began their U.S. journey by sailing into Northeastern ports. Beginning in 1907, however, Galveston became their main port of entry. But why the switch from the traditional ports of entry to a port thousands of miles to the south? The Galveston Movement, of course!
