Milam County, Texas
HISTORIC — The Milam County Museum has donated copies of the recently-reprinted “History of Milam County” to each of the Rockdale ISD school libraries. The volume, by Cameron-area historian Lelia Batte, has been out of print for 64 years. Susan Larson of the museum board made the presentation on Monday.

DAR VISIT — Texas Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Regent Judy Ostler (L) was in Milam County recently to discuss making improvements to the TxDAR Centennial Park, on US 79 near the Brazos River. The park was built in 1936 by the Sarah McCalla Chapter of the DAR of Cameron. In 1955 the highway route changed and the original park became landlocked and forgotten. The marker at the original settlement was moved to the present location in the 1970s.
Pictured with Ostler is State Chair Lucile Estell.
