A great learning experience about the beginning of Natchitoches. The fort built to scale with people to answer questions and inform you of how the people lived within the walls of the fort. 15 minute video inside the information center. Very informative.

Good sight to see and some cool history. I really don't recommend coming with teenagers as they get bored quickly.
