As you stroll down the streets you will discover the importance of the people who lived here and the history that was made.
"Nacogdoches has a soul, a spirit, an atmosphere. She is no raw product of today or yesterday. There are ghosts on her streets...Gentle Franciscan fathers and curious, credulous rediment; lordly Mexican alcaldes and courtly French adventurers...stubborn, spirited, courageous American Empressarios;...men like Rusk,...Crocket,...Houston...Travis."
~Karle Wilson Baker, local poetess and First Lady of Texas Letters~
We started our day at the Olde Towne General Store where we enjoyed a chicken salad sandwich on home made bread and topped it off with a delicious specialty desert.
While walking down the beautiful red brick streets, you are awe-struck by the equally beautiful old brick buildings with their majestic balconies. The antique shops had something to offer for everyone. I was able to purchase some hidden treasures that the shop owner let go of after some heavy bargaining......my cup of tea, loved it.
Had a beautiful day at Nacogdoches - truly one ofthe best kept tourist secrets in
