Wills Point, Texas

Wills Point was first settled near the T&P Railroad in 1873, as Iola, and later it was renamed for William Wills, whose log cabin served as a resting place for travelers between Shreveport and Dallas and referred to as "the Wills point."

Today, Wills Point downtown features quaint 1890s buildings along the original brick streets. It is the center for ranching, livestock, agriculture, and recreation being the "Gateway to Lake Tawakoni". The city calls itself "the bluebird capital of Texas," and features bluebird the festival in April. Bruce Park, situated right in the heart of downtown, features the preserved home of William Wills, a cabin built in 1848. Other period items include an old wagon and farm implements.
