The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP) in partnership with the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation will discuss resources for rehabilitating historic buildings, including tax credits and historic designations. It will also cover the benefits of local historic districts, Louisiana State Cultural Districts, Main Street Communities and National Register listing, as well as how preservation easements can help protect properties into the future.
The meeting will be held Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 6–8 p.m. at Fort St. Jean Baptiste Interpretive Center. Attend the meeting to learn how tax credits, revolving funds, protective easements and designations can help save and protect historic buildings in the Natchitoches community. These projects create jobs, encourage tourism, raise property values and the local tax base and strengthen community pride.
