About the Top O' Hill Terrace:
Located in Arlington, TX, Top O' Hill Terrace was a popular spot that attracted gamblers as well as bisitors who were often unaware of the gaming activities. The restaurant, along with the tea garden that exists today, was a legitimate business, opterating alongside a brother as well as the casino, which benegitted from the nearby Arlington Down Racetrack. During the 1920s, the facilities were converted into a casino, adding an escape tunnel and secret room for hiding the gambling paraphernalia during raids. Top O' Hill Terrace facilities included a horse barn and a private stable for Browning's prized stud, Royal Ford, purchased from oilman and Arlington Downs owner W. T. Waggoner. The Top O' Hill Terrace has been featured in many books and tv shows (e.g., The History Channel, KERA's "Day Tripper," PBS' "Nowhere But Texas," Fox 4's "Lone Star Adventures," etc.).
