"Nacogdoches ~ the Oldest Town in Texas"
Where the Dream of Texas was Born
The Charles and Lois Marie Bright Foundation
recently commissioned Mr. Boyett to create this life-size historic bronze monument to be
placed in thetown square of Nacogdoches, TX , on Hwy 21,
also known as El Camino Real.
Nacogdoches is known historically,
not only as the"Oldest Town in Texas," but also as "The Gateway."
As the early pioneers forged westward, this city was their last contact with civilization - it
was literally "the gateway" to Texas and to the vast unsettled Southwest beyond. This
monument pays tribute,not only to the city of Nacogdoches,
but to the courageous and adventurous spirits ofthe first families that helped to establish
and settlethe great state of Texas!
