Based on reviews we made this a stop on our way to the Natchez Fall Pilgramage. It was a perfect stop, the mansion and grounds were well kept and well appointed. Our tour guide was very sweet and importantly, very knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about the history of the property as well as the era. Worth a detour if you... More

I love the Bragg! I had my own wedding reception here in April 2011. This is the perfect venue for an outdoor party and use the inside for the cake etc. I'm so glad we had our reception here and I enjoy attending other ceremonies at the Bragg

This was one of THE best home tours we have ever experienced. We actually had a private tour that day; but we did go in the off season. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer every question we had about the architecture and the history. This place can be rented for weddings and other events; a... More

When I knew I would be traveling to Mobile fro the first time, I put this Mansion on my list. Sadly, when I arrived they were closed on Mondays! I decided to wlk around the grounds and peek in the windows, not knowing that they were in fact staff inside tidying up after the weekend events. Souther hospitality at its... More

We got married here on May 18th 2014. The site is absolutely beautiful. Its an easy to find location with lots of parking and well manicured grounds. We had the whole event outside under the oak trees and it went perfectly. The staff here are amazing people. Very sweet and welcoming! They went out of their way twice for us... More

I only wish that I had an event to host in order to rent this beautiful place! It is one of the more beautiful homes I have toured in the South.

Received a tour from Ruth. What a hoot. Day was slow, and Ruth walked us around the two floors, explaining the house, history, artifacts, etc. Was a fascinating tour, and extremely educational. Found the connection between the original builder (Mr. John Bragg) to the Confederate General Braxton Bragg (brothers) very interesting. House built in 1855.

I guess the success of a visit to a historic home lies mostly in the skill of the docent. We had a young woman whose vocabulary was that of a high school student so she couldn't offer a whole lot of detail/description about things. There was a certain type of bed maker she mentioned a few times, but she said... More

Stopped by after seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a nice surprise. Ruth was the guide and what a lovely lady and really made the tour. It was nice chatting with her as we walked through the home. The historical information she shared was interesting. It wasn't just information, but stories of the two families that lived there. The... More
