Antebellum Houses in Natchez

Natchez boasts one of the finest repositories of Antebellum Architecture that the United States has to offer, and is best known for an abundance of Spectacular Mansions built prior to the War Between the States.

Although a number of historic properties remain private residences, many have been opened to the public. For example, visitors to Natchez may experience year-round the grandeur of Stanton Hall, the pastoral elegance of Melrose, the melancholy of never-completed Longwood, and the drama of Rosalie’s location on the bluffs above the Mississippi River.

During the Spring and Fall Pilgrimages, a number of private houses such as Montaigne and Green Leaves open their doors for tours. Each of these historic properties provides an unparalleled glimpse into the gracious lifestyle of the Old South.
