Durst-Taylor House 304 North Street Nacogdoches,
The Durst-Taylor Historic House and Gardens is a circa 1835 wood-frame house; second oldest dwelling existing in Nacogdoches.
The pier-and-beam foundation, wood framing, and exterior and interior features make it a rare surviving example of
Deep South Anglo-influenced frame dwelling from the late Mexican or early Republic period of Texas history. Visitors will find historically
accurate plants and structures re-created to illustrate life in Texas during the 1840s. The Durst-Taylor House was home to many early
businessmen, bankers, and political leaders. Now surrounded by the hustle and bustle of a modern Texas town, a visit to the Durst-Taylor
House will take visitors back to a simpler time.
It is the mission of the Durst-Taylor House to research, collect, preserve and exhibit the history,
artifacts, photographs and documents of the families associated with the house and site.
The Durst-Taylor House &Gardens are restored to interpret the 1840-1860 time period and as such preserve
and present local culture and history in a unique, educational and enjoyable manner.
