    Kaufman

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kaufman is a small town in Kaufman County just south of Terrell. There are some 14 historical markers within the city. A small city with a population of only around 6,500 people. An early frontier fort of the Republic of Texas was built in 1840 in Kaufman on a favourite hunting ground for area Indians and settlement was delayed several years by fear of attacks. There is not a lot to see in Kaufman but there are some lovely old homes and of course all those historical markers.

    Lake Ray Hubbard is a large 22,745-acre reservoir on the East Fork of the Trinity River which borders 4 counties. It is a very popular recreation lake with boating and swimming activities, unfortunately drownings occur all too frequently. Robertson Park is the 2nd most popular park and has one of the many Marinas that line the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. There is also a restaurant there. 12 miles west of Terrell on Hwy 80.

    Forney

    A few miles or so down the road heading West on Hwy80 you will come to Forney. Right alongside the freeway is dozens of Antique stores holding everything imaginable (something for everyone). Forney township itself doesn't hold much - yet, but its a quaint little spot with some lovely old homes.
