Travel Tips for Natchitoches

Downtown Historic District

by keeweechic

The Downtown Historic District covers a 33-square block and features more than 50 historic homes and buildings. The brick main street is lined with wrought iron laced buildings, large stately oak trees, and of course, magnolias, the state flower of Louisiana. Churches and buildings from the mid-nineteenth century line the quaint French named streets. Wrought iron benches also are scattered here and there. These were first placed in 1940 and most bear the names of honoured individuals who have contributed to the life of Natchitoches.

Pecan Orchards in Natchitoches Area

by atufft

I'm familiar with English walnuts from my own childhood in California, so I know a little about Pecans. These are large beautiful trees that drop their leaves in winter, but they are in fact a native American nut contribution and a step up on the nut I know better. In fall, the pecans are shaken off the tree by mechanically and captured in a canvas blanket that surrounds the tree. So, hand picking isn't needed so much although sorting is probably done at local drying facilities. Local poor farm workers that once worked in the cotton fields now pick up a few hours in the pecan orchards. Think about these things the next time you bite into a wonderful piece of pecan pie in a Louisiana restaurant. In our trip, we stop by the roadside and stepped into the pecan orchard to give the dog a walk. These are large and beautiful nut trees that have their origins in this area from the trade between the Spanish and French during at first settlement of Natchitoches. The orchards are planted in broad areas near the bayous as the trees appear to like lots of water. See the website given for more history about the great pecan.

"oldest Creole church"

in Louisiana, Natchitoches was settle by the descendants of a slave woman CoinCoin and Captain Augustin Metoyer. They had 10 children that produced 10,000 descendants. CoinCoin bought herself and her 10 kids out of slavery from Captain Metoyer, and worked side by side the slaves she owned. This area was pretty haunting. I will never forget it.
