The Natchitoches community joined at Lee H. Nelson Hall, located on Northwestern State University‘s campus, on June 12 to celebrate their heritage at the Community Preservation Fair.
The fair featured different presentations such as hands-on demonstrations on wood window repair and proper cleaning techniques for stone grave markers.
There was also information on preparing for natural disasters and ways to protect your family and home. Additionally, there were discussions on how trees in historic landscapes enhance historic districts, parks and cemeteries.
There was also information on Cane River heritage and activities for children.
The fair was hosted by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, the Cane River Creole National Historical Park and the Cane River National Heritage Area.
