I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

With the kids all busy with their own lives we decided to to get away with some friends to Natchitoches. This old hardware store is a great place to shop and spend a couple of hours before the Christmas lights come on!

Loved looking at the variety of items at this store. Great kitchen items and unique cooking items. I would have bought something but I was just window shopping as I had a flight to catch.

Enjoyed seeing the variety of items on display. Service was great. I bought a walking cane. Had to have a larger rubber tip. This was replaced and worked much better. Still enjoying the Cane.
