Nacogdoches

Nacogdoches, Texas (pronounced NACK-uh-DOE-chess)
The oldest town in Texas, located in the piney woods of East Texas and surrounded by vast national forests. Even though founded in 1820 by Stephen F Austin and called the gateway from the United States to the vast Texas frontier, the Spanish established a mission here in 1716. Nacogdoches is the home of Stephen F Austin State University (SFA), named after the founder of the first permanent settlement in Texas. There are seven signers of the original Texas Declaration of Independence buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in the city of Nacogdoches. Nacogdoches also sits on the original village of the Nacogdoche tribe of the Caddo Indians. The Caddo Indians remained in Nacogdoches until early 19th century.

I didn't know a lot of that. I had friends who had a summer home in Nacodoches but I don't remember ever going.

Nacogdoches has a LOT of history! We have one house here... the Stern-Hoya house that dates back to the time of Sam Houston (and before... I believe) and it still sits on it's original stone foundation. It's a really neat house (now museum) to visit. We also have the Old Stone Fort. It was moved from it's original location and now sits on the campus of SFASU.

Couldn't figure out a good place to inquire about Nacogdoches, but I just wanted to see if any home brewers were there?

I haven't heard of any, but I'm inclined to think that there are probably some home bewers around here.

I lived in Nac for 5 years. Great town, much more relaxed than Houston. If I could find a job that paid enough, I would move there in a heartbeat.

I used to be on ha hunting lease around Lufkin and would go to some strip club on 59 between Lufkin and Nacogdoches. I was a dive 10 years ago but was total nude.

That club is still there but has changed hands a few times. Right now it's being run by some "foreigners" that may or may not be legal. I know they've been raided a number of times for suspected child "labor".
