The county seat of Milam County, Cameron was established in 1846, and is located on the Little River. It was named for Ewen Cameron, a Scot highlander prominent in the Texas Revolution; the county was named for another independence fighter, Ben Milam, whose statue is on the courthouse grounds. The downtown has been revitalized, with the renovation of the historic courthouse and an 1891 Victorian-style building that now serves as Cameron City Hall. Enjoy a walking tour of the historic downtown; experience history and progress coming together.
Cameron lies at the crossroads of U.S. 77 and Texas 36, a segment of the Ports to Plains Highway connecting the state's heartland to the coastal ports.
Be sure to visit the restored Victorian homes, the Magnolia Inn and Travis Tea Room, for tours, lodging, and dining.
