George Louis Crocket: Out of the Ordinary
September 15, 2012 - May 18, 2013
The newly installed exhibit examines the life and times of Dr. George Crocket. Born in the mid-nineteenth century, Crocket’s life spans a period of great changes in East Texas. The exhibit highlights not only the impact of his leadership on the development of Nacogdoches and San Augustine, but also invites the visitor to share in Crocket’s experiences through hands-on activities, including two period typewriters.
As a cleric, historian, mentor and artist, Crocket forged strong ties within both the Nacogdoches and San Augustine communities. The exhibit displays Crocket’s drawings, writing, and research that formed his legacy - one that reminds us to find the meaning of daily life out of the ordinary.

The campus of Stephen F. Austin State University is home to a fort, and not just any fort. A fort that was a trading post, private home, church, jail, and saloon - but never a fort. A fort that was built three times, and a fort that was torn down by men to be re-erected by women. Read more about the history of the Stone Fort.
