Sites and Attractions in Milam County

  • Milam County had a prison problem in the late 1800s – too many prisoners and too few jail cells. The jail and its hanging tower served the county until 1975. After closing, county commissioners handed the landmark over to the Milam County Historical Commission who reopened it as a museum in 1978. Today, the Milam County Museum features three main attractions – the jail where visitors will learn all about the historic jail building, the storefront Annex on the town square where Milam County history is on display, and the Old Cameron Village, a scale model of the original townsite.

  • Alcoa Lake is located seven miles southwest of Rockdale in Milam County, and is impounded on Sandy Creek, a tributary of Yegua Creek which is a tributary of the Brazos River. Activities include fishing, hiking, and boating on this amazing lake.
