To celebrate 40 years of Cityhood, the City of Dublin produced a documentary that explores the community effort that led to Dublin becoming a city in 1982, and the effort that followed to build the Dublin we know and love today. Dublin: The Making of a City centers around the City’s founding principle: the community of unincorporated Dublin wanted more for its residents 40 years ago.
You’ll learn about the first City Council, a formerly divided school district, and the battles with neighboring cities as Dublin laid its foundation. It’s a story of a small town that grew to a global community, a process that involved civic pride, substantial economic growth, and the welcoming of diverse backgrounds.
Hear first-hand experience from election night, take a journey through Dublin’s early years, and learn more about where you call home.
