Collection Historical Note

Nacogdoches County is in the center of the pine belt of East Texas. It is bounded on the west and south by the Angelina River and on the east by the Attoyac Bayou. Rusk County borders on the north. Prior to the Texas Revolution the territory of Texas was divided into three departments, the area east of the Trinity River constituted the department of Nacogdoches. Later the departments were divided into municipalities with the villages called districts. After the revolution, the municipalities within the overall umbrella of Nacogdoches were divided into counties. From Nacogdoches County came Anderson, Angelina, Cherokee, Dallas, Gregg, Henderson, Hopkins, Houston, Hunt, Koufman, Polk, Raines, Rockwall, Rusk, Smith, Trinity, Tyler, Upshur, Van Zandt, and Wood.

The name Nacogdoches is Caddo in origin and thought to mean "Place of Persimmon" or "Place of High Hill."

At the time of European contact, Caddo and Bidai Native American groups lived in what is now Nacogdoches County. In 1716, the Spanish established asettlement at Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe do los Nacogdoches only to abandon it two years later. Two years later in 1720 the Spanish tried again. They remained precariously in Nacogdoches until 1763, when Spanish colonial authorities ordered them to emigrate South to San Antonio. European settlement remained sparse in the area until 1779, when Gil Antonio Ybarbo led a group back to Nacogdoches area to establish the first permanent colonial settlement.
