Hotels in Nacogdoches, TX
Make your way east in the Lone Star State and check out Nacogdoches. Known as the "Oldest Town in Texas," Nacogdoches 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. Often referred to as the "cradle of Texas liberty," the town offers visitors insight into the fight for Texas independence. Nearby cities include Lufkin and Center.
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. Along with all that history, Nacogdoches is home to Stephen F. Austin University.
