Cedar Hillbillies (inhabitants of Cedar Hill)

"Cedar Hillbillies” (usually in plural, like television’s Beverly Hillbillies) is a slang name for inhabitants from Cedar Hills, Texas. People from Cedar Hills have been called “Cedar Hillbillies” since at least 2004.


Wikipedia: Cedar Hill, Texas
Cedar Hill is a city in Dallas and Ellis Counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is located approximately sixteen miles southwest of downtown Dallas and is situated along the eastern shore of Joe Pool Lake and Cedar Hill State Park. The population was 32,093 at the 2000 census. A 2009 North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) estimate placed the population at 45,600.

Cedar Hill is a suburb of Dallas and is part of the Best Southwest area, which includes the nearby cities of DeSoto, Duncanville, and Lancaster.

Early in its history, Cedar Hill served as the temporary county seat of Dallas County and lay along a branch of the Chisholm Trail. In 1856, a tornado swept through the town killing nine people and destroying most of its buildings. The seat of the county was moved to Dallas not long after.

When I went to school in Cedar Hill, Texas, we joked that the town’s residents were “Cedar Hillbillies” (otherwise, they were just refered to as “Cedar Hill Residents")
