ABOUT THE ART
This shot was taken in Natchitoches, Louisiana, a little town in the deep South known for its Christmas Festival of Lights, Meat Pies, and was the setting for the 80s movie "Steel Magnolia's". During a walk along its mansion studded streets, I came upon the "Steel Magnolia" House, now a Bed and Breakfast. This fountain was located in the carriage house court yard.
Natchitoches traces its history to a French colonial settlement established in 1714 by Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, near the Natchitoches Indian village on the Red River. Trade and plantation agriculture shaped the city's early years. The original French settlement lay south of the current town center. As the Louisiana territory became Spanish and eventually American, the town moved north to Front Street. Much of the town's historic architecture has been preserved. The shifting Red River left Natchitoches behind, protecting it from 20th century development. Caring citizens recognized the importance of this accidental legacy.
