American Cemetery Tour starts in June

The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History museum will offer an American Cemetery Walking Tour on the first Friday of each month from 11:30am- 12:30pm. Tours will begin at the American Cemetery’s 2nd Street entrance, next to the Holy Cross Church.

The purpose of this tour is to familiarize visitors with some of the notable people from the area buried in the American Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Natchitoches. Over the years, planters, businessman, politicians, and educators have all made their mark on Natchitoches and the surrounding area. The markers in the cemetery tell stories of the region’s people and act as an outdoor museum dedicated to their legacy. Free and open to the public.

Weather and Staff Permitting.
