Call before you go. We visited on a Wednesday; the depot was scheduled to be open. We arrived only to find it closed. The outside of the depot is beautiful. View it from all sides. The grounds were well-kept. Wished we would have been able to view the inside.

This is a beautiful old depot from the outside but don't plan on seeing the inside on weekends. For some reason the staff who works at this depot doesn't work on the weekends so all you get to see is the outside. Must not figure tourists visit on weekends.

Great Renovation of the old Nacogdoches Freight and Passenger Depot. The grounds are also very nice. The inside still lacks completing but if you in town, it is worth a drive-by. If you like photographing trains, the tracks in the rear of the depot are fairly active. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
