Sitting on 100 acres of rich Texas soil, the East Texas Arboretum is a sanctuary filled with all the vibrant plants and diverse wildlife that the Upper East Side of Texas has to offer.

The arboretum features natural attractions such as formal gardens that contain hundreds of plant and flower species, two miles of hiking and nature trails, bee hives and bat houses, and a demonstrational windmill and pond.

Celebrating not only the natural beauty of Texas, but its rich history as well, the arboretum includes The Woffard House Museum (built in 1851 and moved to the arboretum in 2001), The Little Red School House (built in 2007 as a replica of an early Texas school house), and a Historic Discovery Barn.

East Texas Arboretum is open every day from 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. during the spring and summer months, and from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. during the fall and winter months. Daily admission for guests is $2 (ages 12 and older) and free for members. For more information go to www.eastexasarboretum.org.
