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

Impressive the amount of work these volunteers have put into restoring this house and acquiring the furnishings.

Auburn allows photographers to shoot in the entire house and on the grounds. The spiral staircase in the front is worth a visit, but the house's history is fascinating also. For many years, the house sat open to the elements with children roller skating in the rooms and sliding down the banisters. With that history, it's amazing the house is... More

My advice: skip Stanton Hall and visit Auburn instead. (Rosalie is also an excellent choice.) I loved hearing the stories about this historic Natchez mansion. It was built fairly early for the area: 1812. In all those years, it's only really had three owners: Lyman Harding, the Duncan family, and the city of Natchez. Lyman Harding was man from Massachusetts... More

Auburn is a beautiful antebellum home is a city full of beautiful antebellum homes. What sets it apart is the spectacular unsupported spiral staircase, one, we were told, of only three in America. It is owned and shown by the City, which means photos are permitted in the interior, unlike most of the antebellum homes in Natchez.

This was not one of the homes recommended to us but I feel it should be. It was saved from total ruin many times. So glad they preserved this one. It is a great beauty with an amazing spiral staircase. Once again we are shown how the war impacted this.
