Natchez...Where History Lives

Living History Encampment at Mt. Locust

The Natchez Trace Parkway will host period re-enactors who will erect lodges (tents) on the grounds of Mt. Locust like those used by the frontiersmen for shelter during the years 1790-1810.

Visitors are invited to view the encampment from Friday afternoon, March 30, 2007, through Sunday afternoon, April 1. Mt. Locust is located at milepost 15.5 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, about 15 miles north of Natchez, Mississippi.

The public is invited to watch frontier lifestyle demonstrations that include cooking, period toys, quilting, and tomahawk throwing. Tours of the historic Mt. Locust Inn will also be given. These programs are free to the public.
