There will soon be signs put up along the El Camino Real along highway 21 in and around Nacogdoches County and the signs will inform travelers of the historical significance of the trail.
A few organizations have banded together to acquire roughly $23,000 for the 48 signs
These organizations include but are not limited to: El Camino Real— De los Tejas Historical Association, who are the front runners of this, the Daughters of The Republic of Texas, they raised around $11,000 and the Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).
“We had put up around $6,000 and ours was more to help with the hardware part of it, not necessarily the signs, ours was the actual posts and the different things they will need to get the signage up,” said Carl Watson, Nacogdoches CVB Executive Director.
El Camino Real is a Spanish term means the kings highway.
The trail begins in Mexico City and ends in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
