To access the location of the Little Egypt marker ceremony on the 20th, follow these simple steps. The marker ceremony will take place at noon, and it is located on Thurgood Lane, which is a short street that is accessed via East Northwest Highway. The marker will be located on the part of Thurgood that is on the east side of the Paul D. Dyer Administrative Building. The Dyer building is at 10031 E. Northwest Highway. Thurgood Lane borders the east side of the building, and runs directly north off of Northwest Highway. For those traveling on Northwest Highway, a handy landmark to keep on the lookout for is the East Lake Veterinary Clinic building, which sits on the corner of Northwest Highway and Thurgood and is across from the Dyer building.

There is a very good chance that Thurgood may be closed off to cars up at the site of the marker dedication. If that is the case, simply:

  1. drive to Audelia Road and Northwest Highway, which is the next street west of Thurgood and the Dyer building (it has a traffic signal)
  2. turn north on it (the only way you can turn anyhow!)
  3. turn right on Shoreview Road (the first street on your right you can turn on once past the Dallas police substation on Audelia)
  4. continue up Shoreview until you reach a stop sign. Thurgood Lane will be the intersecting street on your right.


Park on the street on Shoreview Rd., which is a residential street, or nearby Aldwick, which is a cross street to it. Please be mindful and don’t block any homeowners’ driveways.  It is an easy walk up Shoreview to the marker site. Please also avoid parking in the veterinary clinic’s lot or other businesses in the shopping center on the east side of Thurgood, since they will be doing business on Saturday and need space for their customers.
