my favorite mural...now painted over & gone

In the 1680s the Spanish established a series of indian trails from Mexico to Natchitoches Louisiana by way of whats now Nacogdoches and San Antonio. The trail was called Camino Real a la Tierra de los Tejas. www.ElCaminoTrail.org

On July 9, 1716 the catholic Mission Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de los Nacogdoches was opened by Father Antonio Margil de Jusus, thus founding Nacogdoches, as the first non-indian town in the Spanish provence of Tejas. This is our tricentennial year and special events are planned to celebrate our 300 years of history. I think I can find a friendly guide for TBs. For official information check out: www.nacogdoches300.com or: nacogdoches300@yahoo.

Texas started out with different bands of indians, especially the Nacogdoche Caddo tribe, living off the land in the Nacogdoches area. The Caddo's co-existed well with the Cherokee Nation. The Spanish moved in and claimed all of Mexico, including Tejas, for Spain. Their first settelment in now Texas was in Nacogdoches in 1716. Then the French took over all of Mexico, including Tejas, for a while. The Mexicans booted out the French from Mexico, including Tejas. (Cinco de Mylo.) Then Stephen F. Austin (and seperately Hayden Edwards) made a treaty with Mexico to give Americans very inexpensive homesteads in Texas to deal with those pesky indians. The flood gates opened and many illegal aliens flowed into Texas to get a new start on life.

Charles Bright Visitor Center, CVB
That spoiled Hayden Edwards treaty and he was imprisoned for a while in Mexico. Edwards led the Fredonia Rebellion (one of the nine flags) that only involved Nacogdoches with their strong point at the OLd Stone Fort...now relocated to the campus of SFASU.

Later Mexico was not happy with those pesky anglos in Tejas. Things got sour between Tejas and Mexico so Sam Houston and TJ Rusk led a rebelion against Mexico with the help of the Mexicans living in Texas (and the help of many outside Americans coming in looking for adventure and riches helping also). After some bad defeats on the Independance Texans, Sam Houston (with TJ Rusk covering his left flank) defeated Santa Anna at the miracle Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. That lead directly to Texas Independence, becoming an independant Republic for about ten years.

(CVB), nine flags historical marker
Then the USA annexed Texas as a new state. Sam Houston and TJ Rusk became the two first US senators of Texas. Later Texas joined the Confederacy once again looking for independance; but lost and once again was a state in the USA. I think that accounts for the nine flags of Texas. For the official word on the 9 flags (countries) of Texas please see photos 9 flags a-i, that I enlarged from the CVB.

The truth is there are only six flags of Texas...but nine flags of Nacogdoches...the center of Texas Independence featuring TJ Rusk, Sam Houston, and Adolphus Sterne.

When coming into Nacogdoches from the south, including from Lufkin or Houston, go straight through the south loop 224 exits and you are on South Street (or Bus 59N). Then drive to the center of town to our main red light on Main St.

(CVB), nine flags
(hwy. 21)  (If you drive north you are now on North Street.) At the NE corner of Main St. and North St. is the statue of Thomas Jefferson Rusk. Rusk commanded the left flank of the Republic's Sam Houston army that beat Santa Anna in the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836 that led directly to independance for the Republic of Texas. Rusk also played important government and military leadership for the Republic of Texas. TJ Rusk served important government and military positions in the new US State of Texas. When Rusk made it to Mexican Tejas, he immediately made Nacogdoches his permanent home. Later he was put to rest at Oak Grove Cemetery in Nacogdoches. RIP great hero.

Turn right on Main St. and go one block and you are at Nacogdoches Square, brick streets and more.

(CVB), Caddo indians
The Nacogdoches Square is between Main Street and Pilar Street. Dominating the center of the Nacogdoches Square at 200 E Main St. is the Charles Bright Visitor Center called the CVB. The CVB is the first stop looking for a primary sourse of information on old town Nacogdoches. The CVB has many displays of old Texas including the nine flags of Texas. There are exhibits on Patton's Landing, Spanish in Texas, oil history, first cattle drive, and other ehibits. Call 888-653-3788 or local at 936-552-4157  www.visitnacogdoches.org visit free Mon-Sat 10 AM-5 PM, Sun 1-4 PM

There are many late 19 century structors on the Town Square (many D Rulfs buildings) or nearby that still are open to business.

(CVB) Nacogdoches mural, employee
Just East on Main St. are several good big and small antique stores.

Go two blocks east on Pilar Street to 211 S. Lanana St. to find the 1830 Sterne-Hoya House Museum & Library. This is open free to the public Tues-Sat, 10 AM to 4 PM. Sterne-Hoya is a well preserved 1800s home with research library. The basement is used to store fruits, foods, and spirits. Sterne, a leader in the planning & organising for Texas Independence, built the house in 1830 (the oldest house remaining in Nacogdoches) and sold to Hoya in 1869. Later Sam Houston moved in with Sterne. Living nearby TJ Rusk visited often the Sterne House and Sterne, Houston, and Rusk had many a discussion and planned Texas Independence. I so wish I could have sat in on one of those independence chats with the big three.

CVB mural
When visiting please sign in their book and leave a small donation. For official info: (936) 560-5426

Go west on Pilar street to the railroad tracks. Then turn right (north) till you see the 1911 Nacogdoches Railroad Depot on the left at 101 S. Old Tyler Road. Call for tour appointment: (936) 560-5426

Then return to North Street and go the short distance to 304 North St. the 1830's (second oldest remaining house in Nacogdoches) Durst-Taylor Historic House & Gardens. Their very nice old furniture exhibit shows the old time living conditions. Outside the museum as part of the exhibit is an intact blacksmith shop and smoke house. Durst-Tayler is open free Tues-Sat, 10 AM to 4 PM. Please sign in their book and leave a small donation.

(CVB), steps through trees, Sylvia
Call: (936) 560-4443

Just a few blocks north of the Nacogdoches Square is the 1897 Roland Jones House, a fine old mansion built after Jones passed. Generations of the Jones family lived there before selling out. The Joners house in 1999 was purchased, renovated, and made open to the public by A T Mast jr...and turned into a high end Bed & Breakfast, open only by appointment for a reasonable price. The Jones family still comes and rents the entire house for a week at a time. See: www.the joneshousebandb.com and (936) 559-1487

Go east on Hospital St. to its end and there at Lanana St is the one way entry to Oak Grove Cemetry. For information or assistance contact the Cemetery Supervisor for the city of Nacogdoches at (936) 560-5314. The nice Cemetery Supervisor gave me a personal tour of cemetery and helped me in finding some hard to find markers.

(CVB), Patton's Landing
(The CVB will give you a handout with a guide to finding the most historic markers.) The oldest grave marked there is Franklin Jefferson Starr, 1805-1837. They named Starr St. in Nacogdoches by SFASU after him. The tallest grave marker is for Thomas Jefferson Rusk. I consider TJ Rusk to be the most important Texan buried at Oak Grove Cemetry. Rusk was a general under Sam Houston in the Battle of San Jacento that led directly to Texas Independance. Rusk served important government and military positions for the Republic of Texas.  They named Rusk, Texas and seperate Rusk County after TJ Rusk. From Oak Grove Cemetery you can see the 1914 Zion Hill Baptist Church, another D Rulfs building. I think that Zion Hill Church is the only remaining fine D Rulfs church remaining cuz the big churches all wanted "bigger and better" and the fine buildings were demoloshed.
(CVB), first cattle drive

Commentary: While Zion Hill Baptist Church (the first Baptist church for Afro-Americans in Texas) overlooks Oak Grove Cemetery, no Afro-Americans were ever laid to rest there, and the cemetery is full and has not accepted new residents in years. Zion Hill Church has their cemetery about a KM North of there on Park Street by La Nana Creek, with few marker stones placed there.

Not far north you get to historic Mound Street, named in the 1700s after the Caddo Indian mounds lining the route of old road to be named. Mound Street was one of the first streets to be named in Nacogdoches. For about 400 yards Mound St. has really nice solid well maintained all wood old homes. Start with the Perkins House with a nice yellow color. The Perkins House pic with historical marker has a partial view of the last remaining Caddo Indian mound under the large oak tree.

(CVB), oil pump with oil history
Then see some smaller old homes. Then my favorite large home with no HM. So its Big Old House Red, another Rulfs building. I would like to see inside but dont want to be shot. (We dont cotton to trespassers here.) Then go the other direction (to north) and find what I thought was two large brick churches with only one having a sign saying First Christian Church. I walked a bit and saw that the two churches had a brick conection between, uniting both into only only one hudge church. Outside I could see the older section of the church complex large amount of stained glass. I went to the fron door and it was unlocked. I went in and met a nice employee who gave me a tour of inside First Christian Church.

Across Mound St. in the large Washington Square is the historic Old Nacogdoches University Building, the "mother of Texas education".

(CVB), Spanish in east Texas
Classes started there in 1859 and it is considered to be directly linked to SFA (Stephen F. Austin) Teachers College founded in 1923 after a gap without a college. SFASC became SFASU in about 1970 when reaching the modern University standards then. Free tours of the Old Nacogdoches University are available Tues-Fri, 1-4 PM and sat 10 AM-4 PM. Appointments for tours can be made by calling 936-569-7279. Please sign in their book and leave a small donation. For official information see: www.olduniversitybuilding.com

Go north on North Street and find the 1923 SFASU campus on right (east) and see the Old Stone Fort Museum. The Stone Fort (origionally the Stone House) started as a trading post and fort at another location.

(CVB) statue
Sometime after 1923 it was moved to SFA (SFASC then). The Stone Fort is open free Tues-Sat 9 AM-5 PM and Sun 1-5 PM. Call: (936) 468-2408. The (TJ) Rusk building (1925) serves as the buisness and fiscal building for SFASU. All of the SFASU campus (East side of North St.) was once part of the Thomas Jefferson Rusk homestead. Across North St. from SFASU was the origional TJ Rusk home site, now a law firm in a D Rulfs building.

Go north again on North Street and pass the north loop 224 and shortly you will arrive at 6020 North St. at Millard's Crossing Historical Village, on the right. (East) This village was moved here by Mrs. Lera Millard Thomas in 1970 to preserve an old local 1800s village and a way of life. They have old offices, work buildings, church, many homes and more.

Roland Jones House
There are a number of nice old houses and other structors to look at. They are open Mon-Sat, 9 AM-4 PM, and Sat 1-4 PM. There is a $2 admission for walking tour fee there. Walking and looking there is free. Contact: www.millardscrossing.org  (936) 564-6631 

Unfortunately for simple convience Nacogdoches tore down many fine historic Rulfs buildings in the 1960s, that could have been renovated, especially on historic North Street. Thanks Ms Millard, Mast family, and others for saving history in Nacogdoches.

Now switch gears and from downtown go west on Main Street passing the RR tracts and up a large hill. Then turn an oblique left turn on Durst Street and drive west until you pass the west loop 224 and Durst Street turns into FM 225.

(CVB) Battle of Nacogdoches
Go twenty or more miles west passing Alazan and get to the right turn at the West Lake sign for Lake Nacogdoches; my favorite lake for fishing under a covered canopy in the shade.

Last is my humble homestead in the country. I love my fruit tree orchard in back and my exotic shade trees in front. I am planting domestic and exotic evergreens in formations in the front yard. We are not on GPS and have no direct phone line for emergency services. We stay self dependant. We recycle everything. I am not a citizen of the USA...just Texas and the good Earth.
