Cities to Visit: Terrell, Texas

The City of Today with the Charm of Yesterday... just 30 miles east of Dallas on I-20 or US 80.

Enjoy the rich history of Terrell by visiting the Heritage Museum located in the Carnegie Building. The exhibits include a 1921 Estey pipe organ, farm tools used by early settlers of the area, a unique doll collection and an original painting by Frank Reaugh. The #1 British Flying Training School Museum commemorates the joint effort between the citizens of Texas, and the British and American governments, in training more than 2,200 British and American pilots in Terrell during World War II.

Railroading played an important part in Terrell's heritage… visit the Midland Rail Car, the private dining car used by Col. E.H.R. Green, an early settler in Terrell and son of Hetty Green, the "Witch of Wall Street", located in Ben Gill Park. Terrell has 27 historical markers, many on stately, turn-of-the-century homes, that are easy to find with the "Guide Map of Terrell Historical Markers".

The R.A. Terrell Homeplace, located on the campus of Southwestern Christian College, is being restored and will open to the public. One of the first dwellings erected in Terrell, it is one of twenty surviving Round Houses in the nation, and is a Texas Historic Landmark. The annual Heritage Jubilee offers activities for the entire family and includes an IBCA sanctioned BBQ cook-off. Treasures abound at several antique stores and malls, with bargains at Tanger Outlet Center on I-20. Two rodeo arenas and Thrillvania, voted "Best Of" Dallas Area Haunted Houses, are seasonal activities to explore.

Annual events include Heritage Jubilee (2nd weekend in April) Square Dance Strawberry Festival (3rd Friday in May), July 4th Fireworks, Chamber Civic Auction (October), Christmas Parade (2nd Saturday in December).
