Museum Exploring One of Dallas County’ Oldest Black Communities Temporarily Closing for Repairs

An Irving museum that explores the history of the African-American experience, from emancipation to the Civil Rights movement, is temporarily closing for extensive repairs.

Beginning Aug. 1, the Jackie Townsell Bear Creek Heritage Center, 3925 Jackson St., will shut down as crews complete exterior and interior work on the museum’s three structures.

The center is scheduled to reopen in late 2022, according to a city news release.
