Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Cane River National Heritage Area and Cane River Creole National Historical Park?

Cane River National Heritage Area and Cane River Creole National Historical Park are closely linked and both are a part of the National Park Service. The National Park Service provides the heritage area with funding, legal guidance, technical assistance, and some administrative services. Cane River Creole National Historical Park is a designated unit of the NPS system. Most importantly, Cane River Creole National Historical Park and the heritage area are bound together by their overlapping enabling legislation (Public Law 103-499) to assist one another in the preservation and interpretation of the Cane River region. The two entities frequently partner together to provide new events and programs.

Where can I find the NPS Passport cancellation stamps for the heritage area?

The Cane River National Heritage Area stamp and the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail stamp are available at the heritage area office located at 1115 Washington Street in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

Two separate Cane River Creole National Historical Park cancellation stamps are only available by visiting the park. One stamp is located at the Oakland Plantation store, 4386 Hwy 494, Bermuda, Louisiana. The other stamp is located at the Magnolia Plantation store at 5549 Hwy 119, Derry, Louisiana. The Cane River National Heritage stamp and the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic trail stamps are also available at these two locations.
