The center is looked perfectly in the middle of Nacogdoches. It is a great starting spot for anyone interested in Nac. or East Texas in general. From the very beginning and the Caddo Indians to the more recent Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, this museum has a lot of history to offer in such a small building. Also check out the... More

Out of town family came to Nacogdoches last weekend. Took them on a walking tour of downtown. The Visitor's Center is a must see. Great staff with an abundance of knowledge. You won't be disappointed.

This is a must stop in this town. A lot of historical facts that I was not even aware of. Lots of details, photos, paintings, actual tools & firearms. Make sure you go downstairs too.

The young lady on duty December 27th was so helpful, with excellent maps and knowledge of Nacogdoches. Also suggested dog-friendly locations as we travel with our two dogs. Thank you so much for being such a friendly town and just enough to do. Lots of history!

We drove 4 hours from Austin to see pretty fall foliage. We knew it was mainly pine but had heard about the azalea and dogwood trees. We walked into the visitors center met with stares and a reluctant "Can we help you...?". Told them we were there to see fall foliage and had heard about the azaleas and dogwood. The... More

This visitor's center has a lot of history about the area. It has a room downstairs with pictures, artifacts and a movie about the area. The host was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The people here were so very helpful in telling about the town and helping get an idea of what to do and the best places in town. I HIGHLY encourage this as the first place to stop in town.

If the folks staffing the Nacogdoches Visitor's Center are always as helpful and friendly as they were when we visited the center several days ago, I'd highly recommend this as a stop to anyone touring this historical old Texas city. The people at the information desk took a great deal of time recommending things for us to see, marking maps... More
