On December 14, the City of Natchitoches unveiled the naming for the exhibit hall, board room, and meeting rooms at the Natchitoches Events Center. A reception was held in conjunction to honor Wayne McCullen for being instrumental in establishing the Natchitoches Events Center by renaming the main exhibit hall, McCullen Hall. As previous mayor, his commitment contributed to many significant improvements in the City of Natchitoches and for that the City is truly grateful. The three meeting rooms located on the east wing of the Events Center were named the following: Melrose, Oakland, and Magnolia, with the board room named Fort Claiborne. Mayor Posey stated, “The renaming adds a unique touch to the Events Center when compared to other convention centers across the state.” When visiting or booking the Natchitoches Events Center these names will now become a conversation piece to explain the rich history around which this community is centered.
