What is the Oldest French City in Louisiana?

One of oldest building in the town

You might know New Orleans as French city in Louisiana. It was established in 1718. But, the first settlement was Natchitoches city in 1714.

French has huge territory, then sold to the USA in 1803 with price of US$ 15 million. Considered cheap on that time.

Purchased regions include 15 new states, they are:
- Arkansas
- Missiouri
- Iowa
- Oklahoma
- Kansas
- Colorado
- Louisiana
- Minnesota
- Montana
- Nebraska
- New Mexico
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
- Texas
- Wyoming.

Cane river

As the oldest French settlement, many buildings are well maintain. We may find several old building such as:
- townhouses
- basillica
- general mercantile store

The oldest shopping mall

The city is small with population of 18 thousand people only. What I like are:
- old market
- national park in front Cane river
- foods

Meat pie

We may go shopping just by walking to small and old stores in the oldest shopping complex of the city. As people told me, we should visit at least two stores:
- the oldest mercantile store
- the oldest meat pie restaurant

National park in front of Cane river is calm and beautiful place to enjoy. We may watch attractions in the river if we lucky enough.

Have you visit the oldest French settlements outside Europe?

So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, All thanks to Dr Odinani Owell. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr.Odinani Owell real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now.
