Pecan Point

Pecan Point, in what is now northeastern Red River County, was successively a landmark, trading post, and focus of settlement on the Red River. Its first authenticated mention is found in the French archives at Natchitoches, Louisiana, where under the name of Pointe aux Peconques it was noted as a campsite on the route to the upper river. It is known, however, that previously it was the site of a settlement of a Caddoan group called Natchitoch.
