“charming, reconstructed historic village”
Millard's Crossing is a charming, reconstructed historic village situated on the north side of Nacogdoches, Texas. This remarkable museum complex is named for the railroad track that once crossed through the Millard family property and now borders the north side of the village. Established by the late Lera Millard Thomas, the Village comprises a broad sampling of the 19th century East Texas architecture from simple log cabins to Victorian homes. All of the structures were moved from their original sites and restored by Mrs. Thomas. Today, the Village has become a treasure for East Texas - as an important tourist attraction with award winning tours, an outstanding resource for historic education with hands-on activities for children, and a charming wedding location and event venue for many different functions.
We were so happy to stumble across this gem! We arrived only a couple of hours before closing but were treated to a tour by Roz - she taught the children hour to make bread and how to fluff a feather bed. So much hands on learning for the kids. I love learning about history in a place where you aren’t afraid the kids will break something! Roz spent about an hour with us and then we were free to explore the village on our own. The doctors office was very interesting but the kids’ favorite building was the school house where they were able to write with a quill and ink. Roz taught them the game “ante-over” which they are still excited about several weeks later. Our family has been to Colonial Williamsburg several times but we prefer Millard’s Crossing! Definitely worth a visit if you’re nearby!
The sweetest, slow paced way to spend a morning strolling through history. Loved it!!
