Whether you are a “BIN—Born in Nacogdoches” or you got here as soon as you could, everyone has a story about Nacogdoches that illustrates the love they’ve found here. Love pours from the tallest pines down to the brick streets, into the shop windows of our neighbors’ businesses and through the creek-lined trails. There is something for everyone in Nacogdoches, and we want to hear what that something is for you.
Did you fall in love in Nacogdoches? Maybe you met your sweetie or lifelong best friend at Stephen F. Austin State University. Did you adopt your first pet from the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter? Did you land your first job and find a mentor for life? Have you discovered a talent like quilting or painting and find others that share the same passion as you?
In a time where the news is saturated with negativity and stress, we want to hear stories that exuberate happiness. The Nacogdoches Convention & Visitor’s Bureau is celebrating 25 years in 2021. Our job is and always has been to tell the story of Nacogdoches to visitors from all over the world. Time and time again, visitors have let us know that the charm and hospitality of Nacogdoches is like no other. We think that’s something to celebrate! To commemorate this celebration, the CVB has a goal to collect enough letters to create a coffee table book, as a time capsule reminding us there is always love to be found. This book of letters would be available to purchase in early 2021.
We would love for you to send us your love letter to Nacogdoches. A writing prompt is available here, or you’re welcome to email your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include photos if possible! Please send your letters by November 1st.
