Cedar Hill Exhibit at Old Red Courthouse

The exhibit is on the first floor of the beautifully restored Old Red Courthouse which was constructed in 1892 at 100 S. Houston Street.
See and hear the story of Cedar Hill from its early 1840’s origin in the southwest corner of what soon became Dallas County. The exhibit highlights how citizens worked together developing the community and overcoming tragedies. Among the stories featured are the devastating tornado of 1856, the establishment of the railroad in 1882, and unique tales of bank robberies by part of Bonnie & Clyde’s gang during the 1930’s. Also exhibited are some fossils of a rare 60’ swimming sea lizard found by a Cedar Hill farmer in 1933.
Admission to the 1700 s.f. gallery is $3. A discount voucher can be purchased for parking under the building for an additional $4. The special exhibit is part of Your Dallas, a series of exhibits coordinated through the Old Red Museum of Dallas County. Visit the link below for more information.
