Camp Fannin Historical Markers
The first official recognitions of Camp Fannin occurred during 1993 when the State of Texas set an “Historical Marker” on highway US 271. November 11, 1997 the Veterans Administration Clinic at the University of Texas Health Center, located on the grounds of the original Station Hospital, was named in honor of Camp Fannin. An exhibit is on public display in the Clinic area. March 1998, highway US 271 from Tyler to Gladewater was recognized as the Camp Fannin Memorial Highway. On Memorial Day, 1998, a permanent memorial marker was dedicated at the Regional Postal Distribution Center located on FM 3311. It recognized all who trained at Camp Fannin and especially those who died in combat. A “Camp Fannin” room located within the building is open to visitors when not in use during business hours.
A Guide has been written which provides tour directions and information specific to various sites. Smaller markers have been set to guide visitors on a Drive-Ur-Self Tour, within more than 14,000 acre site of Camp Fannin located between highways Texas 2351, FM 346, Texas 155, and US 271.
