George Miffin Dallas
11th Vice President of U.S.
Named after George Mifflin Dallas, the 11th Vice President of the United States, Dallas was officially incorporated in 1863. The town served as the original County Seat for Gaston County from 1846 until 1911, during which time it was a thriving hub of government and business activity.
