The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History threw a party to celebrate ten years of chronicling our area’s history and our state’s sports heritage, Saturday, July 1. The museum’s award-winning architecture draws visitors from all over the world to our city. The LSHoF was named the number 1 new architectural project in the world when it was built in 2013, the only project to be named from North America.
About 150 visitors came by the museum’s birthday celebration to enjoy traditional Fourth of July fare and experience the new exhibits throughout the 27,500 square foot facility. In addition to displays showcasing our state’s rich athletic heritage, there are items chronicling the history of the local area surrounding Natchitoches. There is also a gallery entitled “Southern Soul” highlighting Louisiana’s folk artists.
The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History is a superb addition to our area’s diverse tourism attractions. The museum offers quality family fun for a very modest admission fee.
