"The Briscoe Center is gearing up for a busy fall. We're particularly excited about what's happening this October at the Sam Rayburn Museum, located in Bonham, Texas, when we unveil a complete upgrade of the museum's exhibits. We invite you to join us in Bonham for what promises to be a fitting commemoration of Mr. Sam's legacy."
