This town was first settled near the T&P Railroad in 1873 as Iola. It was later renamed for William Wills, whose log cabin served as a resting place for travelers between Shreveport and Dallas and was referred to as "the Wills point." Today, downtown features quaint 1890s buildings and original brick streets. The city is a gateway to Lake Tawakoni and a center for ranching, agriculture and recreation.
The Texas Legislature designated Wills Point the "Bluebird Capital of Texas." The annual Bluebird Festival is in April.
