Celebrated as the Bluebird Capital of Texas, Wills Point is a growing town in Van Zandt county. Wills Point was founded in 1873 and gets its name from an early American settler, William Wills, who had arrived in the area around 1848. The name 'point' may also derive from the shape of the original timberline near the cabin, though there have been unsubstantiated arguments that the name relates to the area's elevation. The layout of the city was the work of engineer General Grenville M. Dodge of the California Construction Company. The downtown streets were laid with red bricks upon packed sand in the 1920s by locals and remain in use. Downtown Wills Point has many of its original buildings that are over one hundred years old including the Wills cabin, Bruce & Human Drug Store, Rose Dry Good Store, and Monning and Wynne law office. Governor George W. Bush officially named Wills Point the Bluebird Capital of Texas in 1995. Wills Point is also home to Lake Tawakoni State Park with over 376 acres and 5 miles of shoreline offering swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, and mountain biking.
