1. Chas. Hoya Land Office Marker
Inscription. Built in 1897, by Charles Hoya (1848-1926), son of Prussian immigrant Joseph T. Van Der Hoya, and long-time Nacgodoches County surveyor. Designed by Houston architect Frank E. Rue in Victorian style with the Gothic revival details, this was the first fireproof building in Nacgodoches and served as a model for other local structures. After Hoya's death, the land office business continued under the management of son-in-law J. Roy Gray, until his death in 1966.
