Southeast Austin, sometimes referred to as Dove Springs, was largely undeveloped until 1915. Since then, the 50-square-mile area has been a popular destination. Communities have sprung up east of Interstate 35 in the 20th century.
Most of Austin's museums are located in the downtown district, but Southeast Austin is home to the historic Burdett cemetery. The plat of land, located in the Montopolis
neighborhood, is the resting place of former slaves from the antebellum south.
The Austin Art Garage
can be found in South Austin on Lamar Boulevard. The art gallery provides artists a room to display their work and the public an opportunity to purchase unique works at affordable prices. The Art Garage is open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. most days, free to enter, and kid friendly.
