About Dignowity

Location, history and a steady evolution

Not long ago, newcomers to the East Side neighborhood of Dignowity Hill would likely be labeled urban pioneers. Artists and professionals were initially drawn to the area that was founded as a tony suburb of downtown in the 1800s by its proximity to center city culture and offices as well as its ample and affordable supply of historic homes n(some in need of major TLC). No longer a secret among those who yearn ton ride their bikes to jobs downtown, there are far fewer bargains to be found among Dignowity Hill's 100-year-old-plus homes. But the increased demand means that the neighborhood continues to evolve and progress quickly. Businesses like Dignowity Meats and the Alamo Beer Company brewery next to the Hays Street Bridge provide the sort of amenities and attractions that extend the appeal of Dignowity Hill well beyond the pioneering crowd. It still retains its local flavor, though, with the quirky annual Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby, a community garden at Ella Austin Community Center and a recently founded farmers market at Dignowity Park
