About the Museum

Upcoming Program   NOTE DATE CHANGE

On April 10, 2017 our speaker will be Carol Hanson telling of the U.S. Army’s “Camel Experiment”.

During the 1850’s dozens of camels were brought to central Texas.  It’s a fascinating story with countless historic developments.

The Cedar Hill Museum of History is located at 607 Cedar Street in Historic Downtown Cedar Hill.   The Museum group is currently actively collecting, cataloging and sharing community history through various venues.

Temporary exhibits at the Government Center lobby on Uptown Blvd. and the City Library are changed approximately every two months.  The Government Center is open during the week and on the second and fourth Tuesdays monthly for City Council meetings. Please let us know if you have a private collection which relates to Cedar Hill history that you would like to loan the Museum for display at these locations.

If you would like to receive a newsletter, record an oral history or visit the offices and collection workroom please contact us. The Museum has a small collection of artifacts and over 3,000 photographs, as well as several community related historic documents. The Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday or by appointment. Please contact Phyllis Stewart at 972 293-3806 or 214 769-8425 to visit or to make a donation.

The Cedar Hill Museum of History was organized in 2006 by several members of the Cedar Hill Historical Society which was founded in 1978. The Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is governed by an Executive Board and a fourteen member Board of Trustees made up of community leaders, with one part time administrator, Phyllis Stewart.

Mission of the Cedar Hill Museum is to collect, preserve and share the natural and cultural heritage of Cedar Hill by providing memorable and educational experiences consistent with our hometown spirit.
