Nacogdoches, in Nacogdoches County, claims to be the oldest town in Texas.

Nacogdoches is a town so old it has had 3 more flags fly over it than the Six Flags over Texas. Spain, France, Mexico, Texas, the United States, the Confederacy, plus the Magee-Gutierrez Republic, the Long Republic and the Fredonia Republic.

If the Caddo Indians had a flag that would be yet one more flag to have flown over Nacogdoches. You can find a Caddo Indian Mound at the 500 block of Mound St. in Nacogdoches.

The Old Fort Museum was the headquarters for the Spanish, the Mexicans and Sam Houston's first law offices.

Oak Grove Cemetery is another location where you can dive into the rich history of Nacogdoches. Oak Grove Cemetery opened for business in 1837. It is the final resting place for many historical figures. Including 4 signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence (Thomas J. Rusk, Charles S. Taylor, John S. Roberts and William Clark), two Battle of San Jacinto veterans (E.E. Hamilton and Captain Kelsey Douglass). And Frost Thorn, the first Texas millionaire.

The Sterne-Hoya House is the most historic house in Nacogdoches. Built by a German immigrant, Nicholas Adolphus Sterne, who became a Texas Revolutionary leader, the house was a social and political center of activity in the years leading to Texas independence.
