How the Fredonia Hotel saved the oldest town in Texas

Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and The Fredonia Hotel & Conference Center is its living room.

Are you looking for your new favorite hidden gem?  Well then, you’ll love our next stop where we were invited to hear how one hotel brought new life to Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas. When the Fredonia Hotel and Conference Center was built in the 1950s it was financed mostly by the residents of Nacogdoches. The hotel closed for a multi-year renovation before reopening in 2017, but it has always been a point of pride for the community.

Folks said it was like the town was getting its living room back.

And when you ask, everyone’s got some kind of memory of the place. From etiquette classes or pageants to just stopping by because it’s the fanciest place in town.

Maybe you’re in Nacogdoches to visit Stephen F. Austin University, passing through on business, or just need a starting point for a great weekend. In any case, the Fredonia is one of the most unique places to lay your head in East Texas.

Whether you stop in for the mid-century modern decor, the two different pools to jump in, or a steakhouse full of giant cuts from local farms; the hotel remains a gathering point for locals and guests alike.

It’s a destination location, and it’s got something for everyone. To find out more about the Fredonia Hotel or book a room, check out their website.
