True, I have lived here for 27 years and have never been.

Number One mandate-candidate for TXDoT to repair with a deck park over a sunken highway; number two mandate-candidate connects the convention center to The Cedars.

It was the original location for the memorial (it was moved for freeway construction) and putting it in a "museum" setting would allow for educational discourse and interpretive information around one era of Dallas history.

That is a great idea in theory, but I'm not sure it would execute well. Sending that monument back to "Heritage" Village might be a PR nightmare even though there are plenty of references to slavery in signage that describes the Millermore home and other structures.
Given that it's impossible to place it in the exact location where it once stood, I like the idea of keeping it in a cemetery.
Dallas museum turning to coworking as a solution for historic preservation
https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... s_headline
The Dallas City Council approved a development agreement Wednesday to allocate up to $650,000 from the Cedars Tax Increment Finance District Funds to support the restoration of the house as well as another historic home next to it.
Prycer and her staff saw coworking as a creative way to fund the costly historic preservation for the house and add another source of revenue while also addressing a growing need in the surrounding neighborhood.
The Cedars is evolving quickly in the midst of new development, resulting in some small businesses, and especially artists, getting priced out of the neighborhood. Prycer said she plans to charge 20 to 30 percent below market rate for the small offices that will be converted from the home’s sunny sitting rooms and bedrooms. An unofficial waiting list of eager potential tenants has already formed.

As a reminder, it is this "interesting" looking building:

I wasn't able to locate any sales info or floorplans.
