Louisiana Dance Hall presents:

We’re going to a town in Louisiana called Natchitoches, the subject of a very popular ballad. We’ll hear six different treatments of the song. Like sampling 6 chefs’ take on cornbread – wide variety and all delicious.

Natchitoches was established in 1714 by French explorer Louis Juchereau de St. Denis. It is the oldest permanent European settlement within the borders of the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. Natchitoches was founded as a French outpost on the Red River for trade with Spanish-controlled Mexico; French traders settled there as early as 1699. The post was established near a village of Natchitoches Indians, after whom the city was named. Early settlers were French Catholic immigrants and creoles (originally meaning those ethnic French born in the colony). French creoles acquired lands that were developed in the antebellum years as cotton-producing plantations.

Thanks for tuning in.
