About the Dedrick-Hamilton House

The Dedrick-Hamilton House was owned by Thomas Dedrick, one of the first freed slaves in Travis County. The home, built about 1880, was in one of the earliest African American communities in East Austin. The fully restored historic house now serves as the centerpiece of the African American Cultural & Heritage Center.
