Tour the District
Tours of the District are an opportunity to learn of the rich history of black life in Central East Austin. Tour historic cemeteries, Huston Tillotson University, The George Carver Museum and Cultural Center, The Victory Grill, the home where former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall stayed while he prepared for arguments in the historic Heman Sweat case against the University of Texas, and much more.
Monthly tours are available each first Saturday at 11 AM and 2 PM. Customized tours are available with at least an advanced 2 week notice. Tours are great compliments to family reunions!
The great work of Six Square is made possible through volunteer support. If you would like to contribute to a growing organization dedicated to preserving and celebrating the cultural legacy of African Americans, become a volunteer or intern.
