New sign welcomes visitors to Natchitoches: Home of Northwestern State University

Workers installed a new welcome sign coming into Natchitoches from I-49 today, Aug. 30. Last Spring, NSU’s Student Government Association sent a Resolution to Mayor Lee Posey and the City Council expressing the student’s desire to see “Home of Northwestern State University” added to the sign.

“The students wanted this change because we believe that the University is a huge part of Natchitoches,” said SGA President Jacob Ellis. “The new sign means a lot to the students at NSU. It really makes us feel that the City and the University are united! We love to see the city supporting the students at NSU!”

The old welcome sign was deteriorating and needed constant maintenance, so the timing was just right. Gold leaf will be added to the fleur de lis on the sign over the weekend. Colored landscaping flowers will be placed around it until a permanent plan can be developed. Everything should be finished in the next few weeks.

  1. The city has been working on a LOT of roads. They cannot all be done at once. Now as for the parish roads…. but that’s not the city’s responsibility.

  2. Well donet! Maybe the old sign could be placed somewhere coming in from Grand Ecore (Red River) Bridge toward Washington. Just a thought!

  3. If yall would fix the roads instead of saying how great we are, making flags, and making signs, maybe more people would visit rather than be scared to drop their vehicle off into a pot hole.
