Cane River Creole National Historical Park , Natchitoches, LA Circa mid- 1700's

Scott’s talent is appreciated as far away as Louisiana, where he was br0ught in to restore buildings at the Cane River Creole National Historical Park.

The National Park Service provides a description of this very unique site:

The architecture and landscapes of the Cane River region are enchantingly “Creole”.

“Wander thoughtfully through the grounds of Oakland and Magnolia

Plantations. While admiring a hand-wrought door hinge or a cleverly-worked wooden gate, we might reflect on the social and agricultural practices that built these tenant houses, pigeonniers, carpenter and blacksmith shops.

The hand-hewn cypress beams, ancient bousillage walls, and weathered fencerows may remind us of the people who not only left us this legacy of rural landscapes and farm buildings, but also labored to bring the United States to the country it is today.”

With his versatility and extensive in-depth

knowledge of historic structures, Scott was selected to help with several projects at the Cane River Creole National Historic Park in Louisiana. Scott completed restoration of the Out Buildings, which encompassed stabilization of the structures, and also completed restoration work at the Caretakers House and Cooks House in this truly unique National Park, preserving its heritage for future generations.
