The Friends of Sam Rayburn, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation (incorporated in Texas) that supports the Sam Rayburn House Museum and the Sam Rayburn Library and Museum. These two historic sites are located in Bonham and Fannin County, Texas, the place Mr. Sam called home from the time his parents moved to Fannin County in 1887 until his death in 1961. The Sam Rayburn Library and Museum is a division of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History of the University of Texas at Austin and the Sam Rayburn House Museum is operated by the Texas Historical Commission. The Friends provides funds for various projects not funded by the parent institutions, as well as providing volunteers and other support services when requested by these organizations.
