He might be gone for quite sometime now but none can argue that the Bard of Avon still continue to amaze us with this one-of-a-kind wordsmithing, if ever there was such a word. Fortunately, there is a way to relive his works all over again — by visiting Kilgore, TX.
Kilgore is a city located right in the middle of Greg and Rusk counties. Although it has a relatively small population, it boasts of a number of things, one of which is being the home of classic pianist Van Cliburn for most of his life.
Of course, there’s more to Kilgore than meets the eye. For one, it is actually the home of the annual Texas Shakespeare Festival. This festival is said to was founded in 1986 and has become a yearly practice. The said summer repertoire is held at the Van Cliburn Auditorium which is located inside the Kilgore College. Each summer, four rotating shows are presented to the public. While you’re at it, you might also want to drop by the Kilgore Public Library, which is believed to have been based on the style of Normandy castles. It is also a good idea to check out the Longview Maud Cobb Convention Center as well as the Kilgore Oil Museum.
With all the sites that you have to visit, it is a good idea to have yourself booked in any of the hotels near Kilgore College. One of the Kilgore TX hotels that you might want to consider is the Executive Inn Kilgore TX.
