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

It was ok. We only toured two floors of the house. Wish there could have been more but I enjoyed it. The house was built in 1857 and it is still a beautiful house to look at and the interior is stunning.

Beautiful step back into Gone With the Wind! Life in the South was well described in Natchez, MS and this home was lovely. It was a well done tour and our only disappointment was 2 ladies on the tour that consistently ignored the rule about no photography. Even after the tour guide asked them to stop, one snuck away from... More

We toured Stanton Hall as part of the wonderful Fall Pilgrimage. The location was interesting with the adjacent Garden Club, Carriage House restaurant, and silver shop. Our guide was perhaps the best we had all week. She was an expert on the interior architecural details and furnishings of the period. We enjoyed this tour, and it was easy to walk... More

We visited Stanton Hall as part of the Natchez Fall Pilgrimage. Our visit was part of a wine tasting dinner. We had a lovely evening meeting new friends. The four course dinner was good though not fabulous. The wine pairings were interesting, all whites due to fear of staining the historic carpets with spilled reds! The house itself is beautiful...

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
