The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum celebrated 5 years in Natchitoches’ historical and cultural scene with a party Saturday, July 14th. The celebration featured free ice cream and other refreshments as well as a day of family fun. The museum, in addition to its mission of education and preservation, is noted for its distinctive architecture. It was designed by Trahan Architects of New Orleans. Its forward looking design has been featured in several films shot on the premises.
Athletes from NSU’s Football and Volleyball teams were on hand to assist the museum’s staff with the day’s events, assisting children with crafts and games. They were, as usual, superb ambassadors for their university and the NPJ wishes them every success in their upcoming seasons.
The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum is a component of The Louisiana State Museum, one of several museums throughout the state that cover the rich history of the place we call home. Come by and give them a visit!
