Fans of Texas history will know the historic El Camino Real de los Tejas, a 2,500-mile trail the Spanish began using in the 17th century.

It contains three former mission sites, a presidio, and an Indian village.9112 North FM 908

Milam County Museum
Until 1978, the building that now houses the Milam County Museum served as the county jail and the home of the sheriff and his family. Today you can see it in much the same way as it was originally furnished, along with other relics and artifacts from the area, including dental equipment owned by longtime resident and civic leader Arthur E. Kruse, D.D.S., born in 1893. Open Tuesday and Thursday or by appointment.

Milam County Courthouse & Cameron City Hall-McLane Municipal Center
Another can’t-miss piece of local legend is the county courthouse, built in 1892 in Renaissance Revival style at a cost of $75,000. The clock tower and statue of Justice, which were removed in the ‘30s for safety reasons, were returned in a recent restoration project that brought the beautiful building back to its former glory. The 1891, Victorian-style McLane Municipal Center was also renovated in the early 2000’s, and together with the courthouse acts as the epicenter of historic downtown Cameron.
