Unlike it’s neighbor – Hemphill, San Augustine is not off the beaten bath. Busy little town with a unique courthouse. San Augustine is one of the oldest communities in Texas and wears its age well. The drive into San Augustine was painted with lovely old homes and charming old streets. I know that Jefferson gets all the press – but San Augustine is deserving of your attention as well. I did get a logging truck driving past the courthouse. Just a reminder of the importance of timber in this part of Texas.
