MAIN HOUSE 1833
Louis Metoyer, from a Spanish Land Grant in the late 1700's, began what is now known as Melrose. The oldest dwellings date to circa 1796. The Main House was built in 1833. The complex includes seven outbuildings, each dedicated to its own purpose. The Oak trees on the grounds are over 250 years old and are adorned with Resurrection Fern. Melrose has been a yucca, indigo and cotton plantation. It was built by Free People of Color who were its first residents.  It has been an Artists Colony. It was the work place of Clementine Hunter, a world renowned Folk Artist. Melrose Plantation is a "must see" National Historic Landmark.

Plan a Romantic Weekend Getaway in historic Natchitoches, Louisiana.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has announced that the Natchitoches Historic District is one of the Five Most Romantic Main Streets in the United States. Here is what they had to say about Front Street in Natchitoches.

“What do Main Streets have that the malls don’t? Atmosphere… History… Romance. They’re the place to go for unique experiences. Candle-lit restaurants, unique wedding destinations, charming streets for strolls, intimate wine-tasting rooms, quaint B&Bs, special historic spots — these are just a few of the things that make Main Street districts a romantic destination. This year, we scoured the nation to find the Most Romantic Destinations.

Stay in a downtown Inn or a beautifully furnished century old Bed and Breakfast. Dine on local  cuisine. Enjoy a visit to MELROSE, a French Creole Plantation.
