The seat of Milam County, this city was established in 1846 on the Little River. It was named for Ewen Cameron, a Scot highlander prominent in the Texas Revolution. Downtown has been revitalized with the renovation of the Milam County Courthouse and an 1891 Victorian-style building that now serves as Cameron City Hall and Municipal Center.
Cameron lies at the crossroads of U.S. 77 and Texas 36, a segment of the Ports-to-Plains Highway connecting the state's heartland to coastal ports. The city also is in the heart of the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Trail.
Events include Cameron Dewberry Festival in May, the Arts and Crafts Fair in October and the Christmas Parade in December.
