Exploring Louisiana—More From Natchitoches

A few more pictures from our trip to Natchitoches.  The plaque says that St. Denis  explored and traded with the Natchitoches Indians.

The buildings in Natchitoches are much like the buildings in the French Quarter in New Orleans.

The sign says it’s Louisiana’s oldest hardware store

The ceiling featured two of these large, oval openings— “sky lights”.  The store was built when there was no electricity so the only lighting was when these were opened to the sky.

There is an adorable gift shop on the second floor of the store.  They covered the opening with colorful umbrellas.
