It is a small town about an hour and a half North of Dallas, Texas. There is nothing big about my small town. We have our farms, and small town charm. Everyone knows each other, and if your parents of parents didn't grow up there, then they have no clue who you are. However, it is a small town that is big on community and helping others.

In the end, it's my small town, where I have lived since I was 3. 13 years later and the town is still the same size it has always been. Although, we are building a new lake, so maybe it is growing slightly.

Bonham is a small town with very few things to do. You have to commute for activities, a variety of restaurants, and entertainment. Bonham needs to add more shops and fix up local parks if they want to appeal to families.
This is a great town that desperately needs new leadership. Because of how it is run the people seem very depressed to live there, however this can be fixed.
