Henderson Overview

Henderson is a convenient stop with services on the crossroads of US 258 & US 79 about 4 hours north of Houston.
The congress of the Republic of Texas made Henderson the county seat of the new Rusk County in honor of Thomas Jefferson Rusk a major leader in the Texas Independence (from Mexico) movement and a political and military leader in the Republic of Texas and the new State of Texas. I think TJ Rusk to be the # two hero of Texas next to Sam Houston.
Historic downtown Henderson is just west of the combined US hwys. US 259 & US 79, on Main St. There are many historic old buildings to see and nice people in downtown Henderson.
