NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

 A chance of a lifetime to step back into the past. It’s yours as Nacogdoches hosts the wedding of the century – two centuries ago!

The 1897 wedding of Jesse and Annie Millard is your chance to experience an authentic historic reenactment – all while guests learn more about the oldest town in Texas. On Sunday, actors got their first look at the stage ahead of Friday’s opening night.

"When people come here to Millard’s Crossing, they will step back in history and they will meet the people, they will do all sorts of hands-on, fun things. They will help make the wedding cake and in fact, they will get to eat the wedding cake at the end," said Dr. Linda Bond, producer and SFA professor.  

This is all in celebration of Nacogdoches' 300th birthday. The production kicks off Friday, April 8 at 6:30 p.m. with additional performances Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. at Millard's Crossing 6020 North St. in Nacogdoches.
