About Natchitoches, Louisiana
Natchitoches is the parish seat of Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. This is an old town rooted in French history. It was established in 1714 as part of what was then known as French Louisiana. The French named this area after the tribe that resided there. In fact, this town is the oldest settlement still left over from the Louisiana Purchase. During the Civil War, the entire town was set aflame by the Union army. If it were not for the Confederates arriving in time to put out the fire, the city would have been completely burned, much like what happened to Alexandria.
