This visitors center was well above the norm of most cities. This one had a 7 minute film of the town history, pictures of many activities and many artifacts relating to early town settlers. Plus, the workers all were very knowledgeable and friendly. Worth the stop prior to taking any walking tour.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about both Nacogdoches and Natchitoches, LA, the unofficial "sister city". Legend has it that a Caddo chieftain sent each of his twin sons to rule on both sides of the Sabine River, thus Nacogdoches and Natchitoches. I think perhaps it was due to the French and Spanish interpretation of the name of the... More

We found the information here very valuable since we knew very little about Nacogdoches other than it is the oldest town in Texas. The folks were friendly and helpful. There is a short film in the basement worth watching before you start out. We came away with all the information we needed.

I try to have very few dealings with the Nacogdoches Visitor's Center. The people that they have staff the information desk are rude and have very little knowledge of what is going on. I went to the visitor's center during the blueberry festival to find out where I might get some change as all the banks were closed,I was told... More

They are open during the week on Sat and Sundays and is a great place to get local information. It has a beautiful mural on the way representing the history of Nacogdoches. The basement has beautiful painting going down the stairs. There is a video that plays all the time for local information. The weekends are staffed with volunteers. Many... More

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

A doorway to weekday you will find in this historic town. Most places you can walk to from this location. People are nice and love what they do. Neat items and displays.
