Cultural and historic area of the old south May 01, 2013
The Cane River National Heritage Area of northern Louisiana is a three hundred year story of the culture of the region and all that developed here. The landscape of Cane River has been the focal point for American Indian settlements, colonial forts, and Creole plantations. The river itself was a major thoroughfare, and was home to the Natchitoches Band of Caddo Indians. Early on the French and Spanish and European colonial powers came to the area. Natchitoches grew up around Fort St. Jean Baptiste to become the most prosperous town in the region. This is a rural and mainly agricultural region and has many plantation homes along the region. A few of them are still being lived in and some are open for tours. Each one has a different entry or tour fee. Just driving along the lazy river road allows one to enjoy the spirit of the culture that is present here.
