Welcome to Terrell, America. A community that looks to the future, without forgetting the past.
Whether you plan to visit with us for a few hours, a few days, or even an extended period, we want you to feel right at home. Terrell is a great place to shop, play and live. Here you’ll find a vibrant growing community that not only offers an abundance of attractions and activities, but also holds dear to its small town feel and traditions.
From the numerous historic downtown shops, to the many stores that call the Crossroads at Terrell / Terrell Market Center, and Shops at Terrell their home, in Terrell you’re sure to find that perfect something to satisfy your craving.
Terrell is an extraordinary community—one where city and community leaders come together for coffee once a week and brainstorm about the future. We are a community of culture where E! Terrell brings in world-class performances to a state-of-the-art facility. And perhaps most importantly, we are a community of giving as evidenced by our countless volunteers and generous donations to local charities.
Our schools have earned a B+ rating from the Texas Education Association and have graduated ivy leaguers, major leaguers, an Oscar winner (Jamie Foxx), and Randy Snow, a dominant national and international champion — the only athlete in history to medal in three different sports (tennis, basketball and racing) at three different summer Paralympic Games and one Olympic competition. So profound was Randy’s influence that he was honored in 2004 as the first Paralympic athlete inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame.
You may have been drawn here to taste the famous peaches at Ham Orchards, to tour the beautiful historic homes on Griffith Avenue or to appreciate the history on display at the Heritage Museum or the No. 1 British Flying Training School Museum. Perhaps you came to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, enjoying an afternoon of shopping in historic downtown Terrell.
No matter the reason, we’re glad you’re here. Enjoy!
