Rent an RV in Piney Woods


The Piney Woods is a temperate coniferous forest terrestrial ecoregion in the Southern United States covering 54,400 square miles (141,000 km2) of East Texas, southern Arkansas, western Louisiana, and southeastern Oklahoma. These coniferous forests are dominated by several species of pine as well as hardwoods including hickory and oak. Historically the most dense part of this forest region was the Big Thicket though the lumber industry dramatically reduced the forest concentration in this area and throughout the Piney Woods during the 19th and 20th centuries. The World Wide Fund for Nature considers the Piney Woods to be one of the critically endangered ecoregions of the United States. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines most of this ecoregion as the South Central Plains.

Millard's Crossing

Millard's Crossing is a charming, reconstructed historic village situated on the north side of Nacogdoches, Texas. This remarkable museum complex is named for the railroad track that once crossed through the Millard family property and now borders the north side of the village. Established by the late Lera Millard Thomas, the Village comprises a broad sampling of the 19th century East Texas architecture from simple log cabins to Victorian homes. All of the structures were moved from their original sites and restored by Mrs. Thomas. Today, the Village has become a treasure for East Texas - as an important tourist attraction with award winning tours, an outstanding resource for historic education with hands-on activities for children, and a charming wedding location and event venue for many different functions.
