“The beginnings of Nacogdoches??....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

We have visited the stone fort several times. That is a bit misleading, though it looks like a fort, it was not. Replica of a stone house that served as a trading post, church, jail and saloon. Interesting history nonetheless and we have always enjoyed visiting. The stone work is beautiful. Guides are friendly and will take the time to explain everything to you.

Situated on the beautiful SFA campus. Parking-there are only a few spots available for visitors. Good luck. Free, donations accepted.

“Hard to follow explanation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

Nice history and focus of slaves. Difficult to follow the explanation of the host (though what was clear was good).

“Stone Fort - Historical old fort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

This is a neat place on the university campus, reconstructed to show how the original fort was built. Small museum inside. Rich in Texas history.
