Washington Square

The Washington Square Overlay District is a mixture of historic residential and educational buildings, some of which have since been converted into commercial spaces. Two- and three-story Queen Anne and Stick houses line the east side of Mound Street. Along the west side, on Washington Square, is a wide assortment of educational buildings including the notable Greek Revival Old University Building (1859) and the Art Deco Thomas J. Rusk Building (1939). This district includes one of the highest concentrations of architect-designed homes in the city including several by Dietrich Rulfs and also has Arts & Crafts, Mission, Tudor Revival, and Spanish Colonial Revival examples. There are several churches in the district which add to its architectural diversity and importance in Nacogdoches society.
