Current Special Exhibit

The “Your Dallas” series returns to Old Red:

Cedar Hill: The Last Small Town in Dallas County




The story of Cedar Hill and its growth begins in the 1840s when settlers with the Peter’s Colony arrive by wagon. The town was established as the mother of settlements that developed nearby with the establishment of a post office in 1852 and a railroad line in 1882. During the Great Depression, a Cedar Hill bank robbery could be counted as one of the many that Bonnie and Clyde’s gang undertook. The exhibit will explore the social, commercial, and natural history of the city known as the Hill Country of North Texas.


Developed and installed by the Cedar Hill Historical Society, the exhibit will run from October 26, 2014 through January 25, 2015.
