Heritage and Harvest Tour

The Red River Crossroads Historical & Cultural Association's Heritage & Harvest Tour is north of Shreveport along LA Hwy. 3049 and U.S. Hwy. 71 North. Local residents and visitors are invited to spend a day in the country exploring the history and culture of the region. Historic homes and farms will be open for public tours as well as other points of interest including businesses, churches and attractions. Visitors may also enjoy arts and crafts vendors, live entertainment and food vendors throughout the day. The Heritage & Harvest Tour begins on Hwy. 3049 north of Shreveport. From Hwy. 3049, follow heritage tour signage to the tour route. Hwy. 71 North will also lead visitors to the tour route by turning at the Dixie, Belcher, or Gilliam turnoffs. Many communities along the tour route – including Dixie, Belcher, Gilliam, Hosston, Mira and Ida – are home to businesses and historical attractions that will be featured as tour stops. A brochure containing a map of the Heritage & Harvest Tour route, as well as a complete listing of participating businesses and attractions, can be picked up at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau’s downtown visitor center, located at 629 Spring Street in downtown Shreveport. Brochures will also be available on the day of the tour at the homes featured on the tour.
