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.

I love this home! This is one of the very few you can take pictures in. The park rangers do a great job with their tours and the grounds are very well kept! A must visit here in Natchez!

This house was the first we visited in Natchez and it was an excellent start to our explorations of the mansions. The main house was grand and the tour guide gave an excellent and informative talk about each room. The grounds were very pretty and this house was unique as on the grounds there were slave quarters you can tour... More

So many homes to choose from in the area, but this was a great tour with very pleasant grounds. Knowledgeable tour guides from National Park Service. Able to walk the grounds both before and after the tour. Well done.
