Some 250 miles northwest of New Orleans, be-
tween Alexandria and Shreveport, sits a small
city imbued with history and with an enduring
connection to stage and screen that's summed
up in two indelible words: "Steel Magnolias."
Natchitoches is where the popular play was
written and the film adaptation shot.
"Natchitoches, Louisiana, is not your ordi-
nary meeting destination," noted Arlene Gould,
executive director for the Natchitoches CVB.
"Nestled in the heart of the city known as the
oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana
Purchase, you can experience 33 blocks of
countless historic homes, churches, restaurants
and the Natchitoches Events Center with more
than 18,000 square
feet of meeting
space, all located in
the National Historic
Natchitoches is also
home to the Cane
River National Her-
itage Area, which
has the largest collection of Creole architecture
in North America, and 35 miles of plantation
country river landscape."
Nearby, the Melrose Plantation, built in
1833, is a National Historic Landmark.
The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and
Northwest Louisiana History Museum is
another appealing Natchitoches attraction. It
includes more than 27,000 square feet.
