Several hundred visitors took advantage of this weekend’s picture perfect holiday season weather to participate in the Natchitoches Historic Foundation’s Annual Christmas Tour of Homes. The three day event took place December 12-14 with each day featuring open houses at different historic homes in the city. Tourists were able to tour each historic home, experience each home’s unique holiday decorations and enjoy the lights downtown.
The Annual Natchitoches Christmas Tour of Homes has been a beloved holiday tradition for over 15 years. The tours raise funds for the foundation’s mission of “Preservation, Education and Advocacy”. The Natchitoches Historic Foundation also sponsors the Mildred Hart Bailey scholarship, intended for students interested in historic preservation. The NHF also owns the Roque house on the downtown riverbank and is raising funds for much needed preservation and repair of the historic building. The annual tour will conclude this upcoming weekend of December 19-21.
The Natchitoches Historic Foundation’s Annual Tour is a perfect example of our city’s hospitality at its best. Come out and see the interior of some of the finest historic homes in our state, if not our nation. They are here for all to enjoy and are an integral part of what makes our community so special.
