One hundred acres of wooded beauty, trees, flowers, and wildlife await your discovery at the East Texas Arboretum. The forest appears to come alive as you meander along two miles of woodland trails. Camouflaged frogs, insects, and even deer may appear along winding, spring-fed streams connected by a 115-foot suspension bridge.

The historic Wofford House Museum stands as a reminder of early pioneer day, complete with period furnishings, memorabilia, and a seasonal garden. Built in 1850, the home was relocated to the Arboretum.
