beautiful stairway!

We had a great time here in this lovely home! My daughter even got her picture made on the stairway with a lady in her antebellum attire during pilgrimage.

This antebellum mansion is interesting mainly for it's staircase. Sadly otherwise it doesn't have much of interest. Many of the furnishings have come from other area homes. They try hard but just miss the mark. If you have limited time in the are there are better choices. If you have more time the staircase is interesting and the history of... More

Enjoyed the tour of this beautiful gem! Very informative tour. The spiral staircase is a sight to behold! Get your tickets at the Natchez visitors center where you can save a significant amount of money to view 3 antebellum homes 😉

A really interesting house and a very informative tour. Its more recent history as a city-owned property make it different from some of the other historic homes in the area.

We really enjoyed touring this historic home. The home itself is owned by the city and the people that run it are all volunteers. The staircase alone is worth the visit, but we really loved the home and the lovely architecture of Levi Weeks displayed throughout the home. Our guide, Doug, was just wonderful and very informative. We could have... More

I thought the house was majestic, loved the ornate moldings. Wished the city of Natchez had appreciated the grand home and kept it up back when the home was left to the city in a will.

This is a cool property. There are pictures allowed inside and outside the property and there is plenty to take pictures of. We bought a three house package deal from the visitor's center, so we paid $36 for three houses. Just this one house would have been $15 on it's own. When you drive in on the gravel driveway you...

It's a bit run down on the outside, although you can tell that it once was impressive. Very limited schedule during pilgrimage weeks, so check that carefully... they follow the PILGRIMAGE schedule during those weeks, not their usual schedule.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Auburn. The two volunteer ladies who acted as guides made the tour and were both excellent. The home has been restored and is very interesting. They do not have as many original family pieces of furniture in the home as some others in this area, but it is obvious they are constantly striving to... More
