Historical Inn near Texas A&M University

It’s safe to say that Rudder-Jessup B&B bleeds Aggie maroon and white. Located in College Station’s Southside Historic District just across the street from the Texas A&M University campus, the inn is the former home of the school’s former president and retired general Earl Rudder, who lived on the estate in 1966 after a fire destroyed his campus home. Today, George and Hillary Jessup, a pair of retired academics from the university, run the inn. After more than 30 years spent teaching, the duo decided not to leave College Station and instead restored the Federal-style inn to its former glory and furnished it with antiques.

Rudder-Jessup B&B features three quaint guest rooms, each individually decorated and outfitted with fresh flowers and Truman chocolates. Antique maps, black-and-white photos, and a queen bed draped in white lace fill the elegant Genealogy room. You can borrow a book from the onsite library or root for the Aggies on the big-screen TV in the bed and breakfast's living room. Come morning, enjoy your gourmet breakfast, which is often served on the outdoor veranda that overlooks the backyard fountain and flower garden.

College Station, Texas: Higher Education and Museums

College Station, named in 1877 after a nearby train station, originally sprung up to serve the needs of the faculty and administration at Texas A&M University. Texas A&M is still the focal point of the town, but a wealth of other attractions have moved in to cater to the roughly 96,000 full-time residents and a student body 46,000 strong.

On campus, you can peruse the galleries at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, which offer a behind-the-scenes peek at the life and hair of the 41st president. The neighboring city of Bryan is home to a quaint downtown lined with antique shops, boutiques, and restaurants. Swing by the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History to see 250 preserved wildlife specimens, browse an exhibit of Native American pottery, and examine the bones and fossils of elephants, bison, and cretaceous marine life.
