East Texas is the Lone Star State’s connection to the Old South.
The cultural influence of this part of Texas has a much different feel than that of the central portion of this great state.
With that being said, the types of antiques found in East Texas may feature some subtle differences than those found in other parts of the state.
East Texas once was home to large plantation homes, and much of the fineries from those old homes can be found in antique stores in stalwart East Texas towns like Henderson.
