Before There Was Country Day... Historic Downtown
Under the Main Tent on Cedar
Between Houston and Broad
Friday, October 11, 2013
5:30 - 8 p.m.
In 1937 a small band of Cedar Hill residents gathered on the Old Town Square to fellowship and renew old friendships. As the years passed more and more folks returned on the 2nd Saturday in October for what became known as the Old Settlers' Reunion.
Today that event has grown into what we call Country Day on the Hill. But the settlers still gather around the square on Friday for Bingo, prizes, live musical entertainment, a light supper and the crowning of the King and Queen of the Hill. Your $5 charitable donation ($3 for children under 12) benefits Bridge's Safehouse, ELF and Friends, and the Cedar Hill Food Pantry. A photo album of this event is available for review.

The history of Cedar Hill began for the Potter Family back in 1865 and continues to this very day. Raised in Cedar Hill when the population was barely 300, Joe Potter's roots spanned many generations of grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, so it's no wonder Joe would grow up loving this community.
