From south of the county along Highway 69 through Wells  to  the  north at Bullard, passing along through Rusk and Jacksonville, from the east on Highway 79  to New Summerfield to west to Cuney you will travel some of the most beautiful wooded country in the South. Pines, majestic oaks, sweet gums and dogwoods  give  spring and fall an explosion of colors.

Many  do not visualize Texas as part of the Old South until they have  been through this area. In your travel through Cherokee County, Texas in the heart between New  Summerfield,  Jacksonville  and Rusk is the City of  Gallatin  Texas.  A spectacular scenic view across the  county  is  afforded  just  north  of  Jacksonville at Love's   Lookout    Park,   named  for  the  family  who donated the park.

We hope you will visit whether to take a historic train

ride or a walk across the historic footbridge in Rusk, attend Tomato Fest in Jacksonville, view a football game from one of Texas state's best rated stadiums "The Tomato Bowl", take a trail ride in Gallatin during the Gopher Fest, drop by for a lunch at The Olde Gallatin Store, tour greenhouses and view the United States largest greenhouse operations in New Summerfield, have lunch on a Saturday and attend a livestock auction, tour the Caddoan Mounds just west of Alto left by Texas earliest known Indians, play a round of golf at The Woods at Jacksonville, attend a play at Lon Morris College or the Cherokee Civic Theater, or antique hunt, your treasure awaits you here.
