The city block cost about $1,550. The house cost over $83,000 before it was even furnished. Carrera Marble, mahogany doors 2 1/2 inches thick, candeliers from France, and Italian statuary appointed the interior. Huge Corinthian columns and granite steps adorned the facade. Stanton came to America with his brothers in 1815. He made a fortune as a cotton broker, then as owner of more than 16,000 acres of cotton plantations. Ironically, he lived only one month after his dream home was finished. ...Now inside view of the Carriage House Restaurant Stanton Hall housed a college for young ladies for a short time, then fell into dissarray to some extent before the Pilgrimage Garden Club renewed the antebellum mansion to much of its former glory. It stands today, filled with original and like antique furnishings as Frederick originally created it, a showcase for the world to see. Daily tours are given of the home, and during Spring and Fall Pilgrimages hostesses dress in antebellum costume to greet the throngs of visitors. After the tour, many stop to have lunch at the adjacent Carriage House Restaurant, which is nationally famous for its fine Southern cuisine. Stanton Hall is listed as an official National Historic Landmark. « less

Wished the other floors were available to toure instead of just first two. Home is fully decked out with family and /or period furnishngs. Host pointed out its cinematic hisory... More

Stanton Hall is a huge mansion and beautifully decorated by the local Garden Club. It takes you back to a time long forgotten except in Movies. We were there during the fall pilgrimmage and the ladies were dressed in their full skirts. Our tour leader was very educational and sassy in a very charming way. One member of our group... More

We toured this gorgeous home during the Spring Pilgrimage and were hooked. It is easily the best home in this area and we just fell in love with our docent (a 17 year veteran) who brought this home to life for us with her knowledge and love of the property. I was just recovering from hip surgery but the tour... More

This was another beautiful plantation home. But what is a must see is the Live Oak tree in the yard that was planted in the 1700's. That and the house together is a must see.

We enjoyed our tour at The Stanton House. There are several original pieces in the home. If I recall correctly, all of the chandeliers were original. The square feet of the home is staggering.

The tour of Stanton Hall was fun and interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. The oak trees on the grounds are wonderful and the home was simply amazing. It is a great example of an antebellum home.

Beautiful home. The story was tragic that the owner made this as his dream home but died only a month after it was finished. The tour was informative and even though I've done many home tours like this, I learned some new things. There is a restaurant next door. It has a bar. I grabbed a drink while I waited... More

Stanton Hall shows you what the most ostentatious lived like in Natchez. It is a definite see. However, more personal stories about the history would have been nice.

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this well maintained Antebellum home. The tour guide was very informative & had no problem answering any questions. The house had a lovely "feel" & you could just picture family life here. As a previous reviewer said, it would have been nice to be able to enter the bedrooms, but you did get a reasonable... More
