We visited this when we did our Natchez Trail route. I'm glad we drove out of our way to see it, but because it was raining heavily the day we visited, we didn't get to do much. Definitely try to go on a sunny day.

This place is a good intro to the trace, its origins and its meaning for the settlement of the post-revolutionary early west beyond the Appalachians., enjoy!

My boyfriend and I were in our final leg of a two week road trip and stopped by this Historical Park to break up the drive and visit some of the southern history. We arrived at about 3:50pm right before another tour should've gone out. The park rangers gave us some maps and said we could explore on our own... More

We arrived at Melrose at around 8:45 and there were already people there. Tours begin at 9:00 am at the top of every hour and continue until 4:00pm, the park closes at 5:00pm. The Johnson house downtown closes M-TH during the month of July. Our tour began promptly at 9:00 am and it was led by the park historian. The... More

We visited Natchez hoping to see all of the plantation homes. Well, we were disappointed! Not all of the home are open during the week. We visited on a Wednesday and some were closed! Make sure that you visit the visitor's center to get the information on all of the homes and the times for tours. We planned on seeing... More

Our tour guide, with a masters in History, made the tour fun and alive with information about live in a large mansion during that time. He was funny but shared a wealth of information about the home and the times. I saw many interesting antiques that I had never seen before. Worth the time and ask for the discount if... More

We wanted to visit this place b/c of the wonderful reviews we had seen on TripAdvisor. The Natchez Visitor Center gave us a sheet of local mansions with the times and prices listed. BEWARE! Call and check yourself before you go. We planned to visit as our final stop before leaving Natchez. When we arrived at 10:30 ish expecting to... More

Melrose is the star attraction of Natchez National Historical Park, and deservedly so, but don’t forget that the William Johnson House and the Fort Rosalie site (not currently open) are also administered by the National Park Service as components of Natchez NHP. The review by Steve M provides an authoritative, very clear explanation of this managerial arrangement. We recently visited... More
