"Nacogdoches ("Nac," "Nacanowhere")" Nacogdoches by tejanasueca

Nacogdoches Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 11 photos

The tall pine forests of east Texas bear more relation to Louisiana than to the rest of the state; while undeniably Texan, the locals also identify themselves culturally and geographically with the adjacent corners of Arkansas and Louisiana - the " Arklatex " - and you'll find jambalaya and gumbo in restaurants along with standard Texan dishes.

NACOGDOCHES , north of Angelina National Forest on US-59, claims to be the oldest town in Texas. One of the state's first five Spanish missions was established here in 1716, to keep a watchful eye on the French in Louisiana, and a pyramidal Caddo Indian Mound in the 500 block of Mound Street testifies to more ancient history.
