Welcome to Nacogdoches, proud hometown of USA Futbol (soccer) team captain Clint Dempsey.
We're also known as the official Garden Capital of Texas.
Nacogdoches also claims to be the First Town in Texas - or The Oldest Town in Texas.
It is in Nacogdoches that you walk in the footprints of history. Texas starts here. For centuries the people who have called these lush forests home cultivated the land and tended gardens that nourished the body and spirit. Our streets are lined with landmarks sacred to Texas history.
Make time to experience the abundant activities in Nacogdoches. Choose from fishing, water skiing, camping and boating fun on Lake Nacogdoches, Lake Naconiche or Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Enjoy any of the 16 city parks, six city tennis courts and a rodeo or concert at the Nacogdoches County Exposition Center.
Nacogdoches is home of the Texas Blueberry Festival. Make plans to attend the Saturday, June 11, 2016 event!

Chief Bowles of the Cherokees signs an agreement with General Sam Houston on Feb. 23, 1836, assuring neutrality of Native Americans as the Texians battled Santa Anna and his Mexican troops. The statue is located in Eugenia Sterne Park, at the corner of Main and Lanana. Photo by Bruce R. Partain
