Sam Rayburn House State Historic Site
890 W. State Hwy 56, Bonham, TX 75418
Come to Bonham on September 23, 2023, to join us for Farming Heritage Day at the Sam Rayburn House State Historic Site! This free event from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. will have farm animals, antique tractors and cars, games and activities, and free hot dogs provided by Bonham’s Fix & Feed supply store (while supplies last). Everyone is welcome to learn about the role farms have in our everyday lives as they hear about an important figure in American history – Sam Rayburn.
Local community organizations including the Bonham State Park, the Creative Arts Center, Fannin County 4-H, the Fannin County Amateur Radio Club (K5FRC), and the Fannin County Museum of History can’t wait to share information about all that Bonham has to offer its citizens. Area farmers and ranchers such as Cypress Lake Ranch, Doyle Hereford Ranch, and Maeder Agricultural & Livestock Services can share firsthand knowledge of a rewarding life on the farm. The Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild and the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas are traveling up from the Metroplex to participate in the Farming Heritage Day fun. While you’re here to speak with our participants, we will have the first floor of the Rayburn House open for everyone to walk through. See antique furniture, a variety of dinnerware, and technology from yesteryear as you tour this 107-year-old home owned by the longest-serving Speaker of the House in U.S. history.
We are located at 890 W. State Hwy 56 in Bonham, Texas. Contact us at 903-583-5558 or Sam-Rayburn-House@thc.texas.gov with any questions you have.
