5 Reasons to visit Monmouth Plantation

There are many reasons to come to Monmouth Plantation. Below I have listed five that come to mind. Feel free to post comments with your opinions and other reasons that you visit.

1. Historic Significance
A visit to Monmouth is a step back in time. Built in 1818, owned by Mississippi Governor and Mexican War hero John Quitman, Monmouth Plantation has a rich and unique history. When you stay at Monmouth enjoy a guided tour in the Mansion at no additional cost to you. Wander pebble paths under centuries old oaks and see the family cemetery of the house builder John Hankinson.

2. Luxurious Atmosphere
Natchez’ only AAA Four Diamond Hotel and the only Small Luxury Hotel of the World in Mississippi, Monmouth is the only choice for a truly luxurious experience. Beautifully appointed rooms and suites with all the modern conveniences welcome guests for the night. Wireless Internet, Jacuzzis and fireplaces add to the comfort of the guest rooms.

3. World Class dining
Wonderful cuisine prepared by a team of talented chefs, is available nightly in the Antebellum Mansion. The Chef’s Table meal served at the dining room table has a menu that changes daily. Also offered in the Parlors of the Main House is an a la carte dining option called “1818 at Monmouth plantation.” Both dining options are open to the public seven days a week.

4. Beautiful Grounds
Monmouth Plantation sits on a twenty-six acre estate. The grounds are meticulously maintained by a talented grounds crew. There is something blooming in the gardens year round. The apex of the gardens is in the Spring when the Azaleas are blooming. There are also two ponds on the grounds, a walking trail, a gazebo, a wisteria pergola, hammocks, and many other features you must see for yourself!

5. The City of Natchez
The City of Natchez founded in 1716 is the oldest city along the Mississippi River. The city sits high on a bluff overlooking the river and the state of Louisiana. Natchez boasts more antebellum structures (built before the civil war) than any other city in the South! Many of these homes have been restored to the antebellum period and are open daily for tours. Dining, gaming, and shopping are also available in the city.
