The Sanctuary at Monmouth

Many lovely spots are to be found on the twenty six acres of Monmouth gardens. You can cross the pond by way of a white wooden bridge and arrive at the Reuben Harper Sanctuary. This beautiful place, for quiet meditation, was built in honor of the Riches' friend and long time resident of Natchez. Mr. Harper, known in Natchez and throughout the south as "Buzz" Harper, has been instrumental in assisting with antique selections and renovation projects at Monmouth. Recent additions are two angel stained glass windows.
