Natchitoches, Louisiana – History and Southern Charm
Natchitoches is the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase. The 33-block Historic Landmark District features Creole architecture, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, shops and historic homes.
The epitome of southern charm, Natchitoches was the location of the award winning 1989 film “Steel Magnolias”. In fact, the historic Taylor-Cook House, now known as the Steel Magnolia Bed & Breakfast, is a popular destination for movie fans. This house was central to many scenes in the film, and now the public can visit these iconic scenes for themselves. The Steel Magnolia Bed & Breakfast boasts 5,900 square feet of living space, six bedrooms and bathrooms, a grand staircase, and an 800 square foot guesthouse. Details such as gas fireplaces, crystal chandeliers, and antiques add to the overall charm.
