After a recent camping trip, my family and I visited the Caddo Mounds outside of Nacogdoches, TX. It's an interesting historical site with a newly renovated museum. The mounds themselves are the ceremonial burial ground for the Caddo Native Americans. The site dates back to 800 AD. While the museum was small, it was a nice place to visit and I learned quite a bit about early Texas history.
