WHEN IS A LOG MORE THAN A TREE TRUNK? WHEN IT’S A HOUSE
The Causey House is a restored log home built around 1830. Rescued and renovated by local Milam volunteers, the Causey House has been reassembled in El Camino Park, site of the annual Milam Settlers Day Celebration, held each Saturday before Thanksgiving. The festivities celebrate Milam’s first settlers who, in all likelihood, built and lived in cabins just like the Causey House. A closer look at the house reveals the hand-hewn quality and craftsmanship characteristic of the period. Volunteers have supplied the interior with both authentic and replica furnishings likely to have been found in the original Causey home. While no longer an organized community, Milam is one of the oldest towns in Texas, first described by Stephen F. Austin in his diary as he camped along the El Camino Real de Los Tejas in 1821.
