Given its status as the oldest town in Texas, there’s no shortage of historically significant landmarks in Nacogdoches, TX. You can spend all day walking the downtown section and still not see everything there is to see; and getting a good look at ALL of the beautiful old houses is virtually impossible.
But don’t be too discouraged! There is a way to get a fully immersive old-town Nacogdoches experience in a low-cost, no-stress environment. Millard’s Crossing Historic Village is a place that we could (and probably will) visit over and over again. Showcasing a range of beautiful homes – from the log cabins of East Texas pioneering times through Victorian era houses – this park gives you an in-depth look at what home-life was like during the early days of Nacogdoches.
To add to your enjoyment, you may enter all of the houses; which are furnished true to style, so each dwelling also acts as an individual museum. Each one of these buildings was moved from its original location within the town and carefully restored to their former glory; so you can rest assured that none of the structures are just replicas…they’re the real deal!
If the gorgeous old homes don’t tickle your fancy enough on their own, you can also visit the chapel, schoolhouse, and general store; or sit for awhile and take in the view under the perfectly Southern gazebo.
And if you’re thinking to yourself that this location would be awesome for a wedding, birthday party, private photo shoot, or just a sweet old fashioned tea party, then you’re in luck! Millard’s Crossing is available to rent for very affordable prices; with the added benefit that you’ll be supporting a local historic site!
