American Cemetery Tours hosted first Friday of the month

197

The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest History Museum will host an American Cemetery Walking Tour on the first Friday of each month from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the American Cemetery Second Street entrance, next to Holy Cross Church.

The purpose of this tour is to familiarize visitors with some of the notable people from the area buried in the American Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Natchitoches. Over the years, planters, businessman, politicians, and educators have all made their mark on Natchitoches and the surrounding area. The markers in the cemetery tell stories of the region’s people and act as an outdoor museum dedicated to their legacy. Free and open to the public; weather and staff permitting.
