Hundreds of photographs have been submitted to the Natchitoches Times for publication over the years, but sometimes the original photos were never reclaimed. With decades of these photos, the Times has decided to offer them to anyone for whom they still have value.
Many of the photos represent historical events and personal milestones and some have names and descriptions still intact. The public is invited to browse the collection of photographs at the Natchitoches Times office and reclaim any of personal significance. The remaining photographs will be offered to the Natchitoches Parish Library for the benefit of preserving the history of Natchitoches.
