Natchitoches-Winnfield Area

Life along lovely Cane River Lake – a loop left behind when the meandering Red River changed course – has a distinctly genteel quality. Natchitoches is the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase. The city’s red-bricked Front Street is part of a charming scene that draws people to stroll and socialize along the river. Don’t miss the hugely popular Christmas Festival of Lights. In the Cane River Creole National Historical Park, browse historically significant buildings such as those at Oakland and Magnolia Plantation. Visit landmarks that reflect the area’s Spanish and Native American influences in Robeline, see historic landmarks in Marthaville and Melrose, and view Louisiana's colorful political past in a museum in Winnfield.
