Sunday we went on a tour for Top O' Hill Terrace at Arlington Baptist College. Vickie Bryant lead the tour and was fantastic. She was so passionate and has uncovered so much information about VEGAS BEFORE VEGAS right in Arlington, Texas….who knew! We were introduced to so much history and learned of the hidden tunnels that had been used at that time. Definitely would recommend the tour and we’re interested in going back. Thank you Vickie.

Top historical place to visit in Arlington. A Vegas before Las Vegas. Mrs. Vickie shares tons of information about the history of the place. All info at the top of the tongue. She's encyclopedia of details. You don't understand how you spent 2,3 hours listening to her narration. The old artifacts are well displayed n neat. Admire her enthusiasm and energy to take us around the property, the tunnel etc. She should write a book on this. Enjoyed my visit as an international student of UTA.... Best wishes from Medha.

I had no idea about the history of Top O' Hill Terrace until my sister arranged for us to go on a tour. I was completely unaware that this place was VEGAS BEFORE VEGAS and now it's Arlington Baptist College. If you LOVE or just LIKE History, you'll enjoy Top O' Hill Terrace. This location in the 1930s and 40s was a gambling playground for the rich, famous and infamous. We're talking about some of the big names of that time like Bonnie and Clyde, Mae West, W.C.Fields, Gene Autry, Frank Sinatra,, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Jack Dempsey, Max Baer and the man responsible for Las Vegas, Bugsy Siegel just to name a few. Before it was a casino, it was a tea room but in the 1920s Fred and Mary Browning bought the property and converted it to a gambling mecca. The Browns added an escape tunnel and secret rooms for hiding the gambling equipment during police raids. The tunnel and secret rooms still exist and can be seen during the tour. It's all just fascinating stuff. Tour guide, Mrs. V...

This place is incredible!! The history here is so fascinating and interesting. We had a wonderful tour and it was so neat hearing about and seeing the hidden tunnels. We had the most AMAZING tour guide, Mrs. Bryant. She is so passionate about what she does. It's not just her job, it's her passion! I would definitely recommend.
