Thursday morning we had coffee outside and then we headed northeast to Nacogdoches. This is what I thought I was going to see when we went to Palestine. (Backstory: I took Steve and the grandkids to Palestine to ride the Texas Railroad. We drove over to Nacogdoches the day before the train ride, had lunch and had to head back to the RV because the grandson got sick so didn't get to see all the sights.)
Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and we were going to see some of the oldest buildings. So, the very first place you want to go is the Visitor's Center right downtown. Not only do they have the most helpful people working there that are very knowledgeable, they also have a museum. I did manage to get here on the first visit when a different person was just as helpful.
Many people know about the six flags that flew over Texas but Nacogdoches actually had nine flags flying over it. One was an emerald banner for the Gutierrez-Magee Expedition in 1812 and the other was red and white for the Long Republic in 1819.
