This beautiful house is historically relevant in the Republic of Texas. Sam Houston visited here and this house witnessed many Nacogdoches events. The docent/librarian is friendly and informative. There is also a library inside for research including genealogical research.

We were able to take the guided tour through the house, our guide was very knowledgeable and very personable. I would consider this a must see when visiting Nacogdoches.

Well preserved house. Lot of antiques to please you. Guided tour is worth a visit - free but donation will be appreciated. Sam Houston baptized there.

This house is mostly original and has been well maintained. It is ran by the city and is free to tour although a small donation into the box at sign in would be beneficial to the upkeep of the house. The docent was very friendly...More
