“econd oldest building in Nacogdoches”

The Durst-Taylor Historic House and Gardens is a circa 1835 wood-frame house and is the second oldest building in Nacogdoches. The house sits very close to the intersection of the old El Camino Real de los Tejas and La Calle de Norte and was home to many early businessmen, bankers, and political leaders including Thomas J. Rusk, Bennet Blake and William Ochiltree. This hands-on museum includes a fully functioning smokehouse, blacksmith shop and chicken coop as well as heirloom gardens and a sugarcane mill.  The Old-Fashioned Sweet Tooth Sugarcane event is held annually at the Durst-Taylor Historic House and Gardens on the 2nd Saturday in January. Sugarcane, which is grown at the museum, is pressed using the sugarcane mill and made into syrup. The event is free and fun for the whole family.
