I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

I grew up in a small town in Georgia that had a store like Kaffie-Fredrerick, called McCommons. The small store that has everything is a great way to describe Kaffie-Frederick. For the 60+ age group might remember going into a store like this growing up. What I like so much about going into Kaffie-Frederick now is finding the things I... More

What an interesting store! This is both a tourist attraction and a working hardware store coexisting together under one roof. Much of the history of this place has been preserved and is on display alongside any hardware needs you may have, plus many great items for tourists. It is definitely worth your time to stop by.

Take a Step back in time to a hardware store where you can actually buy one bolt and one nut, if that's all you need... historical building and 100 year old cash register.

This is an Old Time Hardware store. They have almost anything you need around the house or farm. Some of the items are genuine antiques but they have a stock of tools, nuts, bolts and pipe fitting for almost any repair. Also lots of kitchen gadgets and they even sell the "Big Green Egg BBQ"

This old time general store had anything and everything you could want. We picked up a little Radio Flyer red wagon for our granddaughter's birthday. Great shop.

We loved the variety of merchandise found in this historic store... Lots of toys that i had as a kid, and then there is the lovely gift area upstairs. Definitely a place to visit!

Just across from the Cane River Walk and just the place you could spend time,....and money in. There are so many iconic items there and the prices are reasonable. Things I haven't seen in stores for years almost screamed to be taken home. Wonderful place to while away a lazy weekend.

We loved this store! This general store has apparently been a fixture on Front Street for decades. It's got a fascinating array of products that range from general hardware to children's toys to house wares and gifts. If you want a practical souvenir from Natchitoches, this is your place. I bought a great, classic pocket knife which is in my... More
