Honoring our History

The African American Cultural and Heritage Facility Added to the Portfolio of the City's Cultural Arts Division!

The African American Cultural and Heritage Facility (AACHF) plays an integral role in the City of Austin’s long-term commitment to protecting and enhancing quality of life for African Americans. The facility fosters development of cultural activities, business opportunities, and creative collaboration within the African American community and beyond.

In 2017, the faclity was added to the portfolio of the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Division, part of the Economic Development Department. The move created synergy with the Cultural Arts Division’s programs and aligned with the City’s priorities of ensuring equity across Austin.

The center houses the City’s Office of Arts & Cultural Resources, the Greater Austin Black Chamber and the Dedrick-Hamilton House Visitors Center.
