Description: N 1858, Frederick Stanton built the home of his dreams for his family on...
N 1858, Frederick Stanton built the home of his dreams for his family on his new property - an entire city block of Natchez, Mississippi. 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.

Stanton Hall is a beautiful home and well worth the time and expense to explore. The host was very knowledgeable and the home was exquisite! Nicest one I visited on my trip. I highly recommend this tour above others.

Made you wonder how life really was when the house was alive with the owners, children and servants . We will visit again.

The house is lovely inside and out and the tour was great. Guides are very good and friendly. The tour includes two levels and several rooms. Some rooms you could go in and some were roped off for doorway viewing only. There are no pictures allowed inside but I did find some postcards in the gift shop of several of... More

This is a great example of a Grand Southern House. The entrance hall is huge which sets the tone for the rest of the house. Loved all the original features and furniture, and what was not original was very near in look. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and could answer any of our questions with ease.

Quick trip to Natchez with my husband.......we took the tour of Stanton Hall, and it is a lovely antebellum mansion. Tour took 30 minutes and costs $15 a person. Afterward, we went across the garden to The Carriage House......they are known for their fried chicken, and that's what I had....and it was terrific!!! My husband had their salad plate, and... More

My family visited Stanton Hall last weekend and what a wonderful experience! The house is absolutely elegant and is the grandest house we visited in Natchez. The entrance hall. Wow! The detail and furnishings gives one a true sense of life during that era. The draperies in the parlors are magnificent and the original furnishings are exquisite, as are the... More

I only had a chance to see two ante bellum houses while I was in Natchez (which is a shame because there are so many amazing houses there), and I chose Stanton Hall and Longwood because of their reputations. I do think Stanton Hall deserves it - it is very well preserved inside and out. Some of the furniture and... More

June was our guide and she was great. The guide on the horse drawn carriage had told us that she gave a really good tour and he was right. She knew alot of details and to me, it was the most interesting home to tour. Of course, that could have been due to her expertise on her subject.

I went with a coach tour. The rooms are large enough to accommodate a large number of people. The male guide had excellent pronunciation and was easily heard, This ante Bellum house was built with cotton trade/slavery associations. The decor and much of the furniture,paintings and artefacts are not original to the house or the original family. It was bought... More
