Bonham, one of the oldest cities in Texas, goes back to the year 1837, when Bailey Inglish built a two-story block house here, named Fort Inglish. It was located about 2 kilometers from the current downtown. Inglish and other acquanitances then settled there in the summer of 1837 and the settlement was named Bois D'Arc. In 1843, the Congress of the Republic of Texas assigned the name Bloomington to the city, but finally renamed it Bonham, in honor of James Butler Bonham, a hero and defender of the Alamo. On February 2, 1848 Bonham was incorporated as a city.
