Living in Cameron

Hometown, Texas

If you’re looking for a charming community with a hometown feel, Cameron is your place. Residents enjoy a laid back lifestyle with activities to suit any taste, from shopping and dining to beautiful parks and sports.  

Dine, Shop, and Play in Downtown

With a variety of food, shopping, music, and fun, downtown Cameron is the spot to enjoy a fun-filled day or evening on the town. Cameron’s rich history comes alive with a collection of murals, advertising artifacts, and historic buildings. 

The district is anchored by two historic landmarks, the Milam County Courthouse and Cameron City Hall-McLane Municipal Center. Both buildings were renovated in the early 2000s, with the 1892 Renaissance Revival-style courthouse restored with original architectural details and tower.

Celebrating the Arts

From the Milam Community Theater to the Cameron ISD Performing Arts Center, the arts are alive in Cameron. The venues host a variety of shows throughout the year, including theatrical and musical performances. 

 As the former county jail and home of the sheriff, the Milam County Museum offers a step back in history. The museum features original furnishings, period relics, and artifacts.
