Historic Homes

The most obvious examples of Natchez's history are the over 500 antebellum buildings still standing in the city. Many structures remain from the French, Spanish and English eras, and large areas of the downtown residential districts are completely Victorian or antebellum.

Every year, the city opens its doors for its Fall and Spring Pilgrimages. The Fall Pilgrimage lasts three weeks and the Spring Pilgrimage is five weeks long, during which time visitors come to town for special tours of the antebellum homes.

Throughout the months of November and December, Natchez hosts a Victorian Christmas with tours and productions celebrating the town's rich history.
