The two ladies conducting this tour were very hospitable. We felt like we were visiting the home of a very dear friend. Very interesting information about the history of the building added much enjoyment to the last guided tour of our visit.

Docents greeted me warmly when I entered to ask about having a wedding/reception there. The women were eating and in a meeting, but they were so kind and gave me all info I needed. Place is beautifully restored.

It is evident that in 1859 when Nacogdoches University was built, east Texans cared very much about education and building for the future. The Old University Building also shows how much the women of a town can do to preserve history when they set their minds to it!
