Bonham, “The Star of North Texas,” is a city with a population of 10,127, located about 40 minutes from Lake Texoma at the intersection of Hwy 82 and 121.

Visitors can experience any of our five, recreational lakes, our historical museums—including the house and library of U.S House of Representative Speaker of the House for 17 years, Sam Rayburn, and the stockade, Fort Inglish, surrounded by four restored 150-year-old log cabins that have been refurbished to represent a blacksmith shop, a frontier cabin, a general store and a cedar log schoolhouse. For those visitors that prefer modern culture, Bonham also offers a local vineyard and winery and the Creative Arts Center that serves artists from all around Fannin County and beyond. Outdoor activities abound. Over 250,000 acres are leased for hunting each year in Fannin County: Deer, Dove, Duck, Exotics, Pheasant, Quail, Turkey, and Feral Hogs. The Caddo National Grasslands is 17,729 acres that are open to the public for hunting, fishing, camping and horseback riding. Overnight visitors will discover plenty of old-time charm in our restored, historic Bed & Breakfasts.

Those thinking of a more permanent stay will find Bonham a peaceful setting, swathed in rolling hills and beautiful farms and ranches. Come see us and stay as long as you like. 903-583-4811
