Best Western Nacogdoches Texas Hotels
Known as the "Oldest Town in Texas," Nacogdoches TX is named for the Caddo family of Indians who once lived in the area. The area was a Caddo settlement until 1716 when Spain established a mission there. For more than a hundred years the town was a major eastern gateway to Texas. Often referred to as the "cradle of Texas liberty," the town offers visitors insight into the fight for Texas independence. While six flags have flown over Texas, nine flags, including those of three abortive republics, flew over Nacogdoches.
In 1832 the citizens of Nacogdoches fired the opening guns of the Texas Revolution when they attacked a Mexican garrison located in the center of town and successfully drove the Mexican troops out of East Texas. The encounter, known as the Battle of Nacogdoches, cleared the way for the Texas fight for independence. Numerous landmarks and museums pay tribute to the town's historic past. Today, Nacogdoches is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the state. People come to discover the town's historic past and to enjoy its slow-paced and relaxing atmosphere.
