What a pleasant surprise to wander into the visitor's center, while visiting Nacogdoches, for the first time. While not large, there is a lot of Information about Texas' oldest town. We learned about key players in the early settling of this area. Maps, pins, postcards, and a book are available for purchase. There is a free , well- done video,... More

Also in downtown is Old Towne deli where you can get something to eat. At Heart of Texas are gifts and souveniers. There is also the Stern Hoya... More

If this is your first visit to Nacogdoches, this is a good place to get “feel for the land”. Center was staffed by two very friendly hosts who knew the area well and offered tips and ideas for sites to see. Inside the visitor center is a nice modest museum with insights to the city and history of being settled.... More

This visitor's center contains a little museum including a film that gives a 12 minute history of the area and is a great place to start your Nacogdoches adventure. We didn't have time to do much more than visit here and walk around the quaint town center area before heading off to zip line, so this was perfect for us.... More

Our committee visited the Nacogdoches Visitor's Center as a starting point to put together a three day agenda for our group of sixteen ladies from our garden club. The employees at the center were very helpful recommending and making the necessary reservations with various historic and local locations for tours and acitvities. Our thanks to the group!

We stopped by the Nacogdoches Visitor Center in the downtown area to purchase a CD for an audio driving tour guide for the town; however, we learned that they are no longer available. The center does house a historical museum and short film regarding the town which was interesting. It is worth a stop to view some of the town's... More
