My favorite home in Natchez

This house is beautiful! By far my most favorite antebellum home in Natchez. So much history if you like that sort of thing like I do!

The Park guides gave a great tour giving explanations of the families and history of this antebellum mansion. A true snapshot of the rich and famous of the time. There is also some restored slave residences for the house help. These were better quarters then would have been found on a working plantation. The tour was very educational and worth... More

The park tour guides were wonderful and focused on the history of the home and its owners and the home. Most detailed and the park official, Mia, was more than willing to answer questions in depth; it was clear the amount of knowledge and research they had - far more than the lackluster tour I had a Stanton Hall.

Nice home and tour. They don't allow photos inside which I understand for preservation, but would like to have had postcards or some way to remember the inside. Good to see though. Enjoyed it.

This was the cheapest and the best mansion in Natchez! The story and the guides were terrific! It was out of town a way and the sgnage needs to be better, but if you only have time to see one mansion in Natchez this is the one you want to sse

A really lovely house made really special with the tour by a National Park officer called Barney who made the whole tour come to life. He interacted with the whole of the group (about 12 of us) relating to all our different backgrounds thanking us in particular for our buying so much cotton we made the south very rich.(we come...

First of a kind visit for us in USA. Interesting to see the house and outbuildings and understand something about slavery. Also interesting to see the styles and trends inside and how they compare with Europe. Tour interesting but the level of information available not really on the same level as UK National Trust

When we arrived at Melrose the next tour was scheduled for an hour later. It was a hot and sticky day so we opted to skip the tour of the home and walked the property instead. The grounds are lovely. Some areas of this former plantation are preserved and there is an interesting exhibit of a former slave quarters. This... More

This was a fantastic stop. You get to tour the main floor and the upstairs, bedroom floor. Really shows a good example of the times. Worth the stop. Would highly recommend it.

This was not a plantation but a mansion in Natchez that gives you a great understanding of like in Natchez by New York yankees 150 years ago.
