Historic downtown Natchitoches gets a face-lift
This city's past, present and future are being revisited, improved and anticipated.

A series of projects in the downtown area has archaeologists, road contractors and commercial builders working almost shoulder to shoulder. The archaeologists are unearthing artifacts related to the city's rich history in concert with road contractors who are involved in the tedious process of renovating the bricked Front Street. And towering overhead is the quick and steady construction of an unrelated multifloor commercial project that will add more businesses, residences and a tourist attraction to the city.
