  • The El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail Association (ELCaT) was established in 2007, to build a strong citizen's group to support the National Historic Trail which runs from the western border of Louisiana to the Texas-Mexico border.  The Congressionally designated, national significant, Historic Trail was originally established to connect a series of missions and posts between Mexico City, Mexico and Los Adaes, the first capital of the province of Texas.  The trail constituted the only primary overland route from the Rio Grande to the Red River Valley in Louisiana during the Spanish Colonial Period from 1690-1821. 

    Milam County is home to the first model trail community, the Rancheria Grande Chapter, established to promote the trail which runs through Milam County.  Visit the ELCaT website for more information and to explore the interactive maps.

  • Memorial Stones are available and may be placed in the Courthouse sidewalk OR you may pick up your stone to place anywhere you wish.  These make great footstones, Memorials in your garden or a cemetery, or a monument for a beloved pet.  Click to order
  • The Milam County Preservation Grant Fund was established in 2008. The fund awards matching grants for historic preservation in the County.  To date, more than $250,000 of preservation work has been accomplished in Milam County.
