Historic Downtown Nacogdoches is the heart of Texas’ oldest town — community rich with history, commerce, entertainment, educational and cultural opportunities! Celebrated by visitors and locals alike, this year-round destination is bolstered by a mission of preservation and entrepreneurship supported by partnership efforts of devoted merchants, property owners and volunteers.
One of the most unique aspects of Nacogdoches is the large number of locally-owned specialty and antique stores you will find here! Visit Nacogdoches’ one-of-a-kind family-owned shops and restaurants; places that still do business the old-fashioned way. Stop into an old time string shop, the only professional stained glass studio in East Texas and an old-style barber shop like your dad used to visit. Prefer to dine and pamper between shops? Enjoy the quiche of the day at a neighborhood bakery, take in a mani/pedi at an area salon and take home some glam accessories from a special boutique!
