|Facility:||Sam Rayburn House Museum|
|Description:||Sam Rayburn, one of the most powerful and influential politicians of the 20th century, was in his second of 24 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives when he built a two-story home in 1916 on a 125-acre farm just west of Bonham. The modest 12-room home cost $2,800 to build.
The Sam Rayburn House was donated to the Texas Historical Commission by the Sam Rayburn Foundation in 1972. Restored with the help of a $96,500 state appropriation, the site, with its exhibits of Rayburn family items, represents the lifestyle of Mr. Sam.
