A few years ago when Susan Pack Reents moved to Nacogdoches she immediately was drawn to the Fredonia Hotel. Now after more than a year of planning, she is the new owner of the Nacogdoches landmark. "No words, I'm excited, I'm thrilled, my mouth hurts from smiling," Reents explained.
She believes the building has the potential to be a major tourist attraction that would bring more people to the East Texas town. "I think Nacogdoches is a true hidden secret. I've met so many people with their mouths wide open when they've seen this building and they've seen the downtown brick streets and had no idea it was here."
