In the fall of 1939, Melrose took on a new resident – Francois Mignon. Until his death in 1980, Mignon shaped the region’s cultural landscape – whether by writing for the Natchitoches Times or encouraging Clementine Hunter to paint her famous murals. Join Tommy Whitehead at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum as we explore the legacy of a man born in Cortland, New York as Frank Mineah who became Francois Mignon of Natchitoches, Louisiana.
