Seeds of our community

Cedar Hill has a proud and rich history in the South Dallas County area.  The roots of our culture run deep and we protect our historic resources with the same care and forethought with which we are preserve our natural resources.  Our 2.2-mile, self-guided walking trail features over 30 historic sites around the original Old Town Square, and 25-acre Penn Farm Agricultural Heritage Center, located within Cedar Hill State Park, offers guided and self-guided tours year-round.

View historic displays in the lobby of the Cedar Hill Government Center or call ahead to visit the Cedar Hill Museum of History collection in their temporary home on Texas Street. Research your family history at the Zula B. Wylie Public Library just blocks away. And you won’t want to miss the International Museum of Cultures just a short drive up Highway 67.

Yes, we know how to feel the city living, but Cedar Hill still has that small town feel and relaxed charm that many thought was long gone. Experience our warm, Texas hospitality and discover the opportunities our forefathers uncovered here over a century ago.
