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.
Here’s an old bank building. I think it’s beautiful.
We enjoyed looking around in this old hardware store. There were so many things to see.
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.
A nice pic of Don and Chris on the stairs up to the gift shop. Don’t you just love all those little cubby holes behind the staircase?
A double washtub.
Don says his grandmother had one of these. I WANT ONE!!!
Toys in the store windows
Last pic for this post is a gorgeous hanging planter of begonia’s in full bloom.
There will be one more group of photo’s from Natchitoches. Hope you enjoyed these.
