“Well done ”
25 Apr 2017
Built circa 1830's this wood-frame house is interpreted to the 1840 to 1860 time period when the Blackburn family lived there. The house is the second oldest structure still standing on its original site in Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas.

If you’re into historic buildings and old settlers then this is a must see. The visitor center is informative and professionally done. The docent is knowledgeable and friendly.

We visited this beautiful place with a group of young children to help clean up the garden (Big Serve). We were welcomed by a very nice lady. The children really liked the garden!

Took my daughter here during the move in weekend at SFA. I just love old houses, and this is a fine example of an early Texas primitive. Nice grounds, nice docent, clean, uncrowded and air conditioned.

Very nice attraction for those interested in local history. You can see the place in 30-45 minutes so it does not take long. Excellent staff provided a great tour. Admission and tour are free; donations requested and gladly accepted.

Call before you visit. We visited on a Wednesday. Hours were 10-4:00. When we arrived, the building was closed. We walked around the outside thinking we could look at the garden. There was no garden, only dirt.

This was not opened on Sunday, but decided to drive by and see the outside. Was glad we drive by. Wish we could have gone in....but on the road again.

Nice stop on our sight-seeing tour. Most of it was reproductions and not original. The house only had a few original items, still a nice stop.

This is a good place for young families and school tours. It represents a look into the past on how early Texas settlers had to provide for their familes.

The house is original, but the barn (visitors center and starting point), the smokehouse and the blacksmith are all reproductions. None of the furniture is original. Worth a visit, but go to the Sterne-Hoya house for furniture pieces authentic to the house.

The second oldest home in Nac Texas and the little bit of land it sits on is only a small part of what was once a large and thriving farm. The preservation of this property is great and the knowledge of the workers is exceptional....More
