Originally a Caddo Indian settlement and later established as a mission town, Nacogdoches was deemed a pueblo in 1779 when governed by prominent Spanish trader Antonio Gil Y?Barbo whose stone house has been recreated as the Stone Fort Museum on the campus of the local Stephen F. Austin State University. Looking at the past as a launching pad to the future, guests of the Garden Capital of Texas can explore this charming town by strolling along quaint shops that line the red brick roadways of Main Street, participating in activities such as biking along one of two creek-side trails, or enjoying a cool breeze from the front porch of a bed and breakfast.
