A dogtrot house built by prominent merchant and Texas Revolution leader, Adolphus Sterne. It was occupied by the Sterne family until 1869, when it was sold to the von der Hoya family. The von der Hoya family donated it to the City of Nacogdoches in 1958, to be used as a library. The interior of the Sterne-Hoya Museum depicts the history of the Sterne occupancy during the Texas Revolution, as well as the Victorian period of the Hoya family. The home features period antiques, family heirlooms, a Texas history library, and one of the earliest wine cellars in Texas. Tours are given Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
