Great place to take the kids. David was an AWSOME tour guide! A good venue for pictures and I would think a cool place for a wedding at their old time chapel.

When we arrived, we were the only ones there to actually tour the village so we didn't get a guided tour. There were others there having baby showers etc. in two of the homes so we couldn't tour them at all. I was somewhat disappointed that many of the buildings were locked. I also agree with another reviewer that much of the historic feel was ruined by modernized appliances. I also think that it would have been much more interesting if the hands-on tours such as corn shelling, hand plowing, etc. would have been presented and by people dressed up in that period. All in all, it was a nice little site, but could definitely use some sprucing up.

This village was very quaint. It was very interesting to see all the buildings and learn the history behind them, which was provided by the man who greeted us when we arrived. We were provided a map and allowed to roam around on our own. There were several buildings that were closed, but it was nice to go into the ones that were open.

The thing that keeps this from being a 5 star review is the fact that hey have somewhat ruined the history of the buildings. They have been semi-updated with modern kitchens. It just wasn't right to see electric appliances in these historical buildings. I would have liked to see them kept true to historical contexts.

Also, when we went, they were doing some construction on the buildings, and their tools were lying everywhere, which made taking pictures kind of difficult. The man who was running the place mentioned something about not relying on city or government support. While this is a personal choice, if they did receive support, the would be able to maintain the buildings like they are supposed to, and most likely bring more business. A little disappointing, but still worth a stop by.

The history given behind the Historic Village was most interesting and the information of how each building was placed there.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting! This tour gave our group a very good introduction into the history associated with Nacogdoches. Millard's Crossing was first on our list of places to visit and proved to be a good starting point. Several of us plan to return to the city in the future!
