Take a leisurely stroll around Old Town and discover the charm and distinctive character that is Cedar Hill. Step into the Southwest Corner Gallery and imagine how it may have looked in 1932 the day Raymond Hamilton, a sidekick of notorious bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde, robbed what was then the First State Bank, and don’t forget to check out the vault. Capture the charm of The Depot House, one half of the former Cedar Hill train depot, relocated and now a residence. Take in the majestic beauty of the Robert G. Brandenburg House with its sweeping antebellum porch and stately 100-year old trees. And don’t miss the two-story “Gingerbread House,” believed to be the oldest standing structure in Cedar Hill, built by Confederate Army Surgeon, Dr. Rufus Alston Roberts.
The City of Cedar Hill City Council, the Main Street Development and Preservation Board, and the Cedar Hill Museum of History recognize these properties as significant in history and architecture. We acknowledge the valued contributions to the preservation and protection of these historic resources for the education and enjoyment of future generations of Cedar Hill citizens and visitors.
