A national historical park with emphasis on restoration to and education on the antebellum period in the region (and south in general), this home and grounds provides a more complete, concise, and accurate depiction than most plantation homes (to be accurate, this is not a plantation home - it was the city home of a plantation owner). It continues to... More

This was one of the most beautiful roads, parks, and historic sites I have ever been! We are from the Rocky Mountains and so we wanted to experience the history of this area. I was surprised at how little this road and the Natchez Trace is advertised/promoted. Better for us I guess! We drive a 40 ft. Motor home and... More

Have never seen so many historic homes in one place. For blocks almost every home is pre civil war (antebellum). From what I understand the Union army did not burn Natchez since they already controlled the Mississippi River with the siege of Vicksburg. If you are a "Old South" lover you need to spend at least a couple of days... More

I am a writer and photographer for National Park Planner (npplan.com) and I visited the Natchez National Historical Park in November 2014. The park was created to preserve the history of Natchez, Mississippi. Natchez served as Mississippi’s first capital and is more than one hundred years older than Jackson, the state’s current capital city. Natchez was one of the busiest... More

Compared to other Natchez Mansions this was not as well presented as the private mansions. It was good, but the Mansion was under construction at the time and the tour was limited. We walked the grounds and seems like the lawn need to be mowed or maybe they wanted it to look like a pasture, which it did.

A look back into the 1800's. There's a gorgeous antibellum mansion with an hourly tour, slave quarters, fantastic gardens that make you wish you had been around at the time.

While the mansion is undergoing exterior renovations, don't let that deter you from going and taking the tour inside. It is very well furnished and impressive to say the least, worth the cost of taking it. The tour guide we had was knowledgeable and interesting and it did take about 45 minutes for the tour. The grounds have some interesting... More

Yet another wonderful little gem of a National Park. I love the Eastern historic and cultural parks, because they're usually fairly small and intimate, but full of information about wherever they're located. Natchez is no exception-the William Johnson House has reams of information about a unique and impressive man in Natchez, as well as lots of context what it was... More
