History

Cedar Hill State Park, with 1,826 acres, is located on the 7,500-acre Joe Pool Lake. The state acquired the park in 1982 and opened it in 1991.  

Penn Farm Agricultural History Center 

In 1854, John Anderson Penn settled in the rugged, cedar-covered hills of southwest Dallas County, an area known as the Cedar Mountains. Today, remnants of the original Penn Farm survive intact in Cedar Hill State Park.

Penn Farm Agricultural History Center pays tribute to the disappearing Texas family farm. It offers a glimpse into rural life, when farm machinery took the place of the horse and mule almost a century ago. The center is open daily for self-guided tours. It features reconstructed and historic buildings from the mid-1800s through the mid-1900s.
