Wheatley Place is a neighborhood in south Dallas, Texas (USA) that is designated as a historic district by the city. Included among the buildings that compose the historic district is the home of Dallas civil rights pioneer, Juanita Craft.

Predominantly constructed as a neighborhood for African Americans, the area was named for Phyllis Wheatley, an African American poet from the 18th century.

The Dallas City Council designated Wheatley Place as a Historic District on 25 October 2000.
