If a group wishes to retain private use of the pavilion or the grounds after-hours, arrangements should be made with park staff, and cost may be incurred to cover staffing. Examples of events like this could include weddings, family reunions, and film shoots.
To gain access to park facilities after hours please complete the Permit Request and mail to: Superintendent, Cane River Creole National Historical Park, 400 Rapides Drive, Natchitoches, LA 71457, or FAX to (318) 352-4549. The Superintendent will review your request and get back to you.

The cultivation of cotton by traditional methods required a large workforce, and until recently this was composed of African American and Cane River Creole workers. It was the departure of these workers in the 1950s that signaled the end of the plantation system.
