Bowie is the largest city in Montague County. In 1867, this was the last Texas county traildrivers crossed on their way to the Chisholm Trail and north to cattle markets. Today, this city maintains an old-fashioned feel with local businesses offering antiques, home-style cooking and bed-and-breakfast accommodations.
Events include the Jim Bowie Days Rodeo and Festival in June, the Western Heritage Roundup in September, and the Chicken and Bread Days Heritage Festival in October.
The Second Monday Trade Days is a two-day market on the weekend before the second Monday of each month. On Pelham Street, it is one of the largest and longest-running flea markets in North Texas. www.secondmonday.com.
