In the spirit of the site's past residents, the Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site will be collecting extra Halloween candy throughout the month of November to send to our troops overseas.
Staff are also collecting much needed items for our veterans at the Sam Rayburn Veterans Memorial Center in Bonham, in partnership with the Joseph Ligon chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
For more information on needed items, please contact the site at 903.785.5716. All candy and items can be dropped off at the site seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through the month of November. You do not need to participate in a tour to drop off candy and needed items. Thank you for your help!
