Commentator Gary Joiner highlights American Cemetery in Natchitoches, the oldest cemetery in the Louisiana Purchase. Established around 1737, the cemetery is only a few years younger than the town itself, and its historic landscape is filled with trees and wildlife. It is located on the 200 block of Second Street in the Natchitoches Historic District and open to the public during daylight hours.

History Matters is made possible in part by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities and Louisiana Cultural Vistas Magazine.
