Texas is brimming with rich history, and our small towns are the best places to experience it. One of the most historic small towns in Texas is San Augustine, nestled in the dense forestland of the Piney Woods. Dating to the early 1700s, this tiny town features many original buildings in remarkably good condition. Not much has changed here over the centuries, so if you’re looking to slow down and step back in time, we can’t imagine a better destination.
Have you ever visited San Augustine? If so, we’d love to hear all about your experience in the comments section! Don’t forget to check out our previous article for a rural road trip that leads right through San Augustine.
