May is Preservation Month!

To celebrate, Louisiana Main Street is highlighting a different Main Street community each day. Today we are featuring New Roads, Louisiana!

The beautiful city of New Roads is located on the banks of False River, an owbox lake formed when the Mississippi River changed its course. The first settlement in New Roads dates back to 1822 when it began at the terminus of a "new road" linking False River and the Mississippi River. New Roads is the parish seat of Pointe Coupee Parish. The courthouse is located in downtown New Roads.

Downtown also has a public boat launch for False River along with waterside restaurants with beautiful views of the lake. Boutiques, antique shops, and restaurants line Main Street, paralleling the lake. New Roads hosts the third largest Mardi Gras in the state.

To celebrate, Louisiana Main Street is highlighting a different Main Street community each day. Today we feature Leesville, Louisiana!

Leesville is the parish seat of Vernon Parish. In 1871 the city was founded by Dr. Edmund Smart, whose father was a senator and wanted to name the new community in honor of General Robert E. Lee. The parish courthouse is still a downtown anchor but much of the city's economic drive comes from Fort Polk, the largest military base in Louisiana. The base serves as home to more than 24,000 active duty military and their families!

Downtown Leesville is the host of many festivals and events. Every year Mayfest brings vendors from all over Louisiana and surrounding states who offer home-made items and food made from scratch. Other annual events include Derby Days, Gumbo Cook-Off, Witch Way to Main Street, and the Old Fashioned Christmas Festival, in addition to several parades.

To celebrate, Louisiana Main Street is highlighting a different Main Street community each day. Today we are featuring Natchitoches, Louisiana!

Natchitoches is the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase - not just the state, but the entier Louisiana Purchase! It was established in 1714 by Louis Juchereau St. Denis as part of French Louisiana. The city was incorporated in 1819 and is the parish seat of Natchitoches Parish.

Downtown Natchitoches is the home of Kaffie-Frederick General Merchandise, Louisiana's oldest hardware store. When you're in downtown Natchitoches, you will want to shop in the many different types of shops, eat in the many different types of restaurants, and spend some time on the waterfront of Cane River Lake. Beau Jardin and the Roque House Gardens are a beautiful wedding venue on the waterfront. Downtown is a National Landmark Historic District with many historic buildings. The movie Steel Magnolias was filmed in Natchitoches and the city is home to Northwestern State University.

The annual Natchitoches Christmas Festival is a huge event, drawing attendees from across the country. While the Christmas Festival is the most famous, there are many other downtown events throughout the year, including Bloomin' on the Bricks, Cookin' on the Cane, and Celebration on the Cane.

To celebrate, Louisiana Main Street is highlighting a different Main Street community each day. Today we feature Morgan City, Louisiana!

Morgan City came to life when it was originally settled as the town of Brashear. A railroad and steamship entrepreneur, Charles Morgan, dredged the Atchafalaya Bay Channel, bringing prosperity to the town. In 1876, the town was renamed in his honor. Morgan City is located on the banks of the Atchafalaya River.

Downtown Morgan City hosts several great events throughout the year. The Louisiana Shrimp and Petroleum Festival has been drawing huge crowds since its start in 1936. The Bayou BBQ Bash takes place under the bridge in Morgan City. While in downtown, you will want to walk along the top of the seawall and see all the shrimp boats. You can also walk to the Mr. Charlie Rig Musuem - the only place in the world where the general public can walk aboard an authentic offshore drilling rig!
