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'"

This store is amazing and I would challenge anyone to visit and not enjoy themselves poking around the huge range of items they have on offer. I would be surprised if many ever leave without buying something. We fell in love with the little red typical American wagon for our grandson . He loves it !

Old fashioned general store (reportedly the oldest in Louisiana) is part hardware store, part kitchen store, part toy store. I found so many things that I remembered from growing up (I'm 54 now) that were newly packaged and ready for a new generation to enjoy.

It's the oldest family run business in Natchitoches est in 1896. It's like stepping into the past. They even still use their register from 1914. No computers here lol

Things we haven't seen since we were kids! They have everything: every tool, kitchen utensil & equipment, old time toys, plants, barbecues ... They have a sign that says "we have it here someplace, let me look." We had such a good time walking around the store!!! Definitely recommend a stop here. If they don't have it, you probably don't...

We own a Hardware store so this was a must for us to check out. A wonderful step back in time while still offering the current products. Wide variety of kitchen goods, lots of toys from the past. Could spend lots of time in here.
