Very helpful staff, lots to mull over inside to plan out your Nac visit

Did not get the gentleman's name inside, but he and my wife had a great conversation about all the things we might see while in town as well as the town history.

Very accommodating and welcoming. There were many, many cool artifacts and informative tidbits from the hostess and a film about the town's history. Well worth the time!

The visitor center is well worth the stop. It is well run and feels more like a museum. A gentleman named Michael was extremely helpful in explaining some of Nacogdoches rich history. We spent about a half an hour here and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Much more than your standard Visitor's Center. The staff was engaging and helpful.There are several rooms of quality exhibits. The 7 minute film on the history of Nacogdoches is well done. There is a free booklet which includes the town's history. Don't miss the credenza in the boardroom.

We stopped in here to get information and the man at the front desk was very helpful and gave us some ideas where to go in the area. This is a beautiful little town and you should stop at the visitor's center first to pick up information.

This was our first stop in Nacogdoches. The staff was very friendly as well as helpful. The exhibits are very well done. This is a good place to have any and all questions answered, get any needed directions as well as a map of the town.

The Visitor's Center is in downtown Nacogdoches, which is very quaint and beautiful. The streets are brick, and the buildings are old and interesting. The center has many displays which are interesting to all. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and pleasant.

We really enjoyed the Visitors Center in Nacogdoches and learning so much about this quaint little town! The location is right in the middle of the town square which made it very easy to find. Highly recommended.
