Cameron, Texas-based United Country Real Estate | Texas Realty Brokers specializes in farms and ranches, country homes, hunting properties and land acreage for sale throughout Milam County in Central Texas.
Home to more than 5,000 residents, Cameron is mostly a rural community but it still has the benefit of being relatively close to larger, more urban cities. It’s 70 miles northeast of state capital Austin, 50 miles northwest of College Station and about the same distance due south of Waco — all of which happen to be home to major universities.
But Cameron itself, along with Milam County (pop. 24,000+), is defined by profitable agriculture and farming operations, a moderate cost of living, small town charm and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Historical Snapshot: Milam County & Cameron, Texas
Originally organized as the “Municipality of Milam” before later becoming an official county in 1837, the municipality once covered one sixth of Texas. It’s considered one of the state’s first seven counties and was eventually broken up into at least 15 other counties.
Cameron formed in 1846, named after Scottish adventurer and key Texas Revolution figure Ewen Cameron. Railroad industry growth in the 1880s gave the city a needed economic boost, and manufacturing and agriculture soon followed. Today, Cameron and Milam County’s economies still rely a lot on farming corn, cotton and grains, and raising beef cattle.
This part of present-day Central Texas – like much of the rest of the state – also embraces its history through niche museums and preservation of historic sites and structures. In fact, a handful of early 1900s steel bridges in the region are still in use today.
What’s most evident these days though, are Cameron’s and Milam County’s identity as places with affordable living costs, country charm and close proximity to outdoor adventures on the rivers, lakes and in the forests.
