It has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The shop buildings and houses are laiden with cast iron grill work, and balconies or galleries which overlook the Cane River Lake. Visitors to Natchitoches will see a town which is very reminicent of the days when the grand south and cotton production were of prominence in the economy. Like most southern cities, Natchitoches residents were religious. A number of church congregations in the area date back before the Civil War.
