MILAM LIBERAL INSTITUTE. Milam Liberal Institute at Cameron, Milam County, was chartered on March 28, 1848, and is the first school known to have operated at Cameron. George B. Erath and George Green were on the board of trustees of the nondenominational school. The original brick building burned. How long the school operated is not known, but its second building was still in use as a business building and Odd Fellows hall in 1948.
