History of Nacogdoches
The Caddo Native American tribe were the earliest inhabitants of the region. They remained the sole inhabitants of Nacogdoches until 1716, when the Spanish built missions in the area. The French also became active in the area at this time, through trade. The Nacogdoches were Native Americans under the broader Caddo tribe, as the city owes its name to its earliest settlers.
The city's history has witnessed an eclectic mix of diversity. For example, France, Spain and Mexico all owned land in Nacogdoches at some point in the city's rich history.
The state's first newspaper, Gaceta De Tejas, was published in Nacogdoches. The city's current newspaper is The Daily Sentinel.
Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College, which is now called Stephen F. Austin State University, was pivotal in attracting talented young men and women to the city, helping in the process to galvanize the cultural life of the city. The college was founded in 1923.
The city has multiple industries that serve the economic needs of renters, such as poultry production and recreation vehicles, and is a center for animal feed and fertilizer among other businesses. Tourism also brings many people to Nacogdoches each year.
