Come explore the history of Natchitoches Parish and discover the stories of the people of Cane River Country. Visit the Cane River National Heritage Area.
From early Native American Indian inhabitants to the French explorers and priests to the American arrival in the early-1800s, Natchitoches has lived through hundreds of years. They arrived into the United States in 1812 and to this day the Indian, French, Creole, African American and Anglo cultures mix their cultures, traditions, and talents, and yet they remain distinct.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We purchased this property while my son attended Northwestern State University. He wanted to live near campus and this duplex home was perfectly located within a short commute. The attached fully equipped extra unit allowed for the design of a guest suite apartment. He has graduated, and we now consider this guest suite our family’s vacation retreat, known to us as “The Cabin in the City”. We have worked very hard to make our home comfortable for people to enjoy and use.
