The Cammie Henry Research Center on the third floor of NSU’s Watson Library is hosting a unique exhibit on Natchitoches history. NSU graduate and long term Natchitoches resident H.G. Hawthorne was a founding member of the Natchitoches Motorcycle Club, which was founded in 1948. Hawthorne donated the items shortly before he retired and moved to Texas. The exhibit features memorabilia such as race posters, tickets and photographs. It’s an interesting display of items of a little known time in our community’s life.

The Cammie Henry Research Center exhibit is free and open to the public Its hours are Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. – Noon
