Bonham Visitors Center is here to help guide visitors and tour groups to the many attractions, museums, and events in and around the City of Bonham, Texas and surrounding Fannin County. Dating back to 1837, we are one of the oldest cities in Texas. Visit the Fannin County Museum of History to see how Bonham was started and has changed over the last one hundred and eighty plus years. Offering restaurants for dining with friends and family, Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts for a special get-away, our quaint little city is an amazing jewel just an hour north of Dallas.

Most notable from here is former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Sam Rayburn. We are home to the Sam Rayburn Library and Museum and the Sam Rayburn House State Historic Site, Mr. Sam’s former home. One of our new attractions is the Barn Quilt Trail. It’s the largest in Texas and offers hours of sightseeing enjoyment. Be sure to plan to visit Bonham, Tx on your next trip.
