Natchitoches Historic District, also known as Natchitoches National Historic Landmark District is a historic district in Natchitoches, Louisiana, the oldest permanent settlement in Louisiana. Natchitoches was founded by the French in 1714. "Natchitoches" is pronounced /ˈnækətəʃ/ (NAK-ə-təsh).

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1984.[2][3]

Instrumental in the establishment of the district is the historical preservationist Robert DeBlieux, who served as mayor of Natchitoches from 1976-1980.
