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

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.

This old antebellum home has much to see. The furnishings and tour guides are fantastic. This is a must see home to visit if you are interested in the antebellum and old south culture.

This house is operated by volunteers so you really feel the difference. These people are there because they want to be there. It wasn't a stuffy scripted tour. I felt like I was just visiting the lovely home & chatting with my charming tour guides. I toured the house while my husband was allowed to walk the grounds with our... More
