We stopped by to learn a little Nacogdoches history. It is a small museum and library. Admission is free. It is located right near the historic downtown. The yard is gorgeous with large shade trees, flowering shrubs. I could sit on the wide front porch all day, but they provide no chairs for doing so, nor benches in the yard. That was a disappointment. Quiet area. Parking lot adjacent.

We really enjoyed comparing the 1890s home we own in Connecticut with this house. That may well have increased the level of interest we had in the home. It is well preserved and the docent was able to answer most of our questions.

A very friendly and knowledgable docent gave us an interesting tour and discussion. This is a good place for folks who are interested in east Texas history. Probably not so much for the younger children. Plan to spend about 30 minutes to an hour

Historical landmark well preserved in a beautiful setting lost in the trees on a deadend street...remarkable it's survived all these years! Lot of Texas history for the history buffs.

The Sterne Hoya house was very inspiring, well kept and yet "original" in feeling! Our docent, Apree, was enchanting with her narrative and facts. We actually hung on her every word as she took us back to the 1800's and early Texas history. Imagining Davie Crockett and Sam Houston standing together while discussing the future of Texas is easy to do with Apree's guidance.

It was a very pleasant and informative hour and well worth our visit.
