Eye on Texas - N - visits Nacogdoches - one of the oldest towns in Texas. It claims life under nine flags, and there was a Spanish mission built in 1716. It is located in east Texas and has a lake of the same name.
Stephen F. Austin University is located here. There is a restored historical train depot as well as other museums.
From Wikipedia - In 1912, the Marx Brothers came to town to perform their singing act at the old Opera House (now the SFA Cole Art Center). Their performance was interrupted by a man who came inside shouting, "Runaway mule!" Most of the audience left the building, apparently thinking a runaway mule would provide better entertainment. When they filed back in, Julius (later known as Groucho) began insulting them, saying "Nacogdoches is full of roaches!" and "The jackass is the flower of Tex-ass!"
Plenty of history to enjoy in the Nacogdoches area. And any town with a university such as Stephen F. Austin University has plenty of entertainment and restaurants. Enjoy!
Oh dear - what does the Countess on Downton Abbey have to say -
"Why would you want to go to a real school? You're not a doctor's daughter. "
