But I have researched the building, and I do have a problem or two with the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum.
(What about those lengthy appellations? LSHF&NLHM is certainly a mouthful. I first heard about it in a Smithsonian Channel documentary about its construction. And locals pronounce the town's name as merely Nackitish.)
The building in question is the white-roofed structure squeezed into half of this trapezoidal lot where Front Street turns into Washington Street, just north of the Natchitoches business district. Its smaller square neighbor is the 1830 Pioneer Land Office and Bank Building, now operating as the Pioneer Pub. They both face the Cane River Lake, a hundred yards to the east.
In contrast, the interior is a series of twisting passageways inspired by the flowing water of the area's rivers. The light-colored panels are attached to a steel framework. Their complex shapes could have been fabricated from lighter materials, but instead they're made out of cast stone slabs several inches thick, the largest weighing nearly five tons.
But these fantastic passageways are virtually empty except for a few people and one apparently lost car.
By the way, why does a local history museum have to share space with a statewide sports hall of fame? I suppose there's one advantage: visiting fans of Shaq and Pete Maravich and Archie Manning might inadvertently learn some history.
