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

This was a beautiful antebellum mansion. I have toured many and this was one of the best-preserved. Exquisite architectural details and beautiful furniture. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that all of the upstairs bedrooms were observable only from the hall. It would have been nice to go in and get a better look.

This is Southern history at its best. A step back in time to civil war days snd just an epic house. The fried chicken at the carriage house in the back is delicious.

My friend and I enjoyed seeing the home and getting a glimpse into life in the past. The tour guide was kind, but not very animated or well researched.

This plantation owners home is in down town Natchez. The shop and reception ladies are very friendly. The waiting area is outside on the porch. Once inside you may not take pictures anywhere. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all materials in the house, manufacturers, dates, fabrics etc etc. We were lucky that we were the only two people... More

A lovely old antebellum home. A look back into the past. Good guides for the tour. And your tour price helps keep the old buildings in repair. Well worth a visit.

Our group of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) recently completed a 2-week roadtrip of the Southern States. While in Natchez, we visited 3 mansions. This one was, by far, the grandest. We had first seen it the evening before on a carriage ride, and decided to explore it the following morning. Now owned and operated by the Pilgrimage Garden... More

It has been carefully restored by the Garden Club ladies. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the antiques and furnishings. The Zuber wallpaper is not to be missed!

Drop dead gorgeous grounds, breathtaking home. Enormous and very well preserved. Lots of original furnishings. Tour seemed rushed, but they might have been moving us along so we couldn't see areas that still needed repairs.
