About Us

The HDBA, was formed in the early 1980’s to provide the business owners in the Historic District an avenue for networking together. Our mission is to make the Natchitoches Historic District the #1 tourist destination in Louisiana. To accomplish this goal, the HDBA hosts several events each year and assists other groups with their events.

A major event hosted by HDBA is the Return to the 50’s Car Show, held on the first weekend in October each year. This event started in 2007 with 88 cars in attendance and by 2011 the number had increased to 325. Expectations are high as we look forward to hosting the 6th Annual Return to the 50’s Car Show on October 5 and 6, 2012.

We invite you to enjoy the natural beauty of our city, where you’ll visit with some of the nicest people in Louisiana and partake of the great cuisine Natchitoches has to offer. If our organization can be of help to you, please use this form to contact us or email us here.
