Did you know that Tejas is a Caddo native word for friend?

This was a wonderful center with information about the many nations and tribes that have lived in or around Nacogdoches. The local Indian tribes were peaceful and settled until... read more

Very helpful staff. They made suggestions for activities for all members of our family. My husband and I enjoyed walking around their artifacts and educating ourselves about the town.

There is a neat review of Nacogdoches Area history and events. They do have a museum type of displays and artifacts that are interesting.

This was a wonderful center with information about the many nations and tribes that have lived in or around Nacogdoches. The local Indian tribes were peaceful and settled until the various immigrants/invaders arrived. I had no idea that there was a river port so close to the town until they created the lake. Amazing.

As Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas, most things are historical - as is the Visitor's Center. The building itself has an interesting history, as well as offering a nice overview of Nac's history. Tickets to performances at the Lamp-Lite Theater are also available at the Visitor's Center.

Nacogdoches is a very small town to visit. The downtown area is so small with very little traffic. I'm a city girl so not my cup of tea. But we made the best of it since we were there to drop off my daughter at SFA. We did the ziplining at Zip Nac, enjoyed the evening at the pool after... More

It is in the center of town. The exhibits are informative and give you some background before you start. The staff is helpful. They have brochures of the different attractions. I would recommend picking up the walking guide brochure and walking to the attractions to the north of downtown and then driving east to the cemetary and Sterne-Hoya house.
