There’s a reason Natchitoches was the first French settlement in Louisiana. It is at a critical location on the Red River as well as being on one of the best trade routes. To this day, that has not changed. Being connected to so many major interstates, highways, railways and waterways, Natchitoches is a great economic opportunity.
