Attractions in Mineola

Mineola Downtown Historical District
Entering its 33rd year as a Main Street city, and on the Registry of National Historic Places, Mineola’s downtown shops and restaurants offer a variable experience from antiques, boutiques, handmade products and crafts, to fudge, cheesecake, fried pies, and baked goods. Longstanding downtown eateries like The East Texas Burger Company and Kitchens Hardware and Deli paved the way for newer places like Cowburners Barbeque and Taproom, Logan’s Place, and Val’s Italian Restaurant. Nightlife is alive and well with The Line and RNA tavern and you can hear live music on every block.

The Mineola Nature Preserve
On the south side of town, near loop 564, you’ll find the Mineola Nature Preserve. This 3000 acre wildlife sanctuary on the Sabine River is home to a host of birds, fish, and other wildlife. It has even been designated as the “Birding Capital of East Texas.” The preserve also boasts an 18 hole disc golf course, miles and miles of walking and equestrian trails, ponds for fishing, mountain bike trails, a playground, archery range, pavilion, amphitheater and even RV spots (with horse pens) for overnight stays. The preserve is also host to all manner of special events and concerts, including weddings, astronomy nights, kid fishing days, and educational demonstrations and programs.

Iron Horse Square
Situated between Front and Commerce Streets and alongside the Union Pacific Railroad tracks is Iron Horse Square. This five-acre area in downtown Mineola celebrates the railroad heritage of our city with a train-themed playground and open air pavilion that is home to the Mineola Farmers Market (Saturdays, Memorial Day weekend-October). The big star of Iron Horse Square is the 15 gauge, ¼ scale mini train. The train is a replica Union Pacific engine that pulls three cars and can accommodate 36 passengers, young and old, around its tracks for free on 2nd and 4th Saturdays, April-October and during holiday and special events. 
The Mineola Civic Center was created with one central idea: to build a place where adults, children and families could meet, play, or stay! Meeting facilities include, Meredith Hall, a flexible 22,000 square foot multi-use facility that can accommodate most any size group. The Peggy & Jack Jones Pavilion, is a large a covered pavilion with air-conditioned restrooms and a seasonal concession stand. ADA accessible picnic tables provide ample space for birthday parties, family reunions, church picnics or visiting with friends. You can bring your recreational vehicle to stay in our RV Park. Sites include 30/50-amp electrical hook-ups with water, sewer, and Wi-Fi. The RV pads are concrete and level, with a grassy area around your site. Rounding out Mineola Civic Center’s amenities are a splash pad, children’s playground, lighted tennis and pickleball courts, picnic areas with BBQ grills, sidewalks for walking and running and lots of open space to enjoy the outdoors.

The Mineola Historical Museum
The history and heritage of Mineola is extremely well documented and artfully displayed in the Mineola Historical Museum. The museum is in the old post office just one block north of downtown and its exhibits and displays highlight the times and people that made this little railroad town what it has become. Clothes, yearbooks, uniforms, old shop signs and pieces from iconic businesses are all perfectly organized in such a calculated and inviting way that guests frequently admit losing track of time. The museum is open Thursday through Saturday, 10:00-3:00.

Mineola Country Club
Built in 1932, this 9-hole course and club has weathered many years and changes and still continues to be a favorite among area locals and visitors alike. Open to the public 7 days a week, and housing a popular patio bar area, this “old country club style” course can be as challenging as is it is beautiful. There’s also a swimming pool, and event space. Mineola Country Club is family friendly and a great spot to hit the links with family, friends, or a seasoned club member who will be glad to show you around.
