Type: Historic Sites, Cultural
Owner description: 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.

You'll love touring during fall and spring pilgrimages and can really see how people lived pre Civil War. The period furniture was wonderful in this enormous mansion, open year round.

Lovely on the inside, less so on the exterior, Stanton Hall is huge even by today's McMansion standards. Size aside, the outside is nothing special, but the exquisite interior has been lovingly and meticulously restored and maintained by a small army of local notables. The result is lively historical accuracy that brings bring vibrancy to the many rooms and hallways... More

This home is one of the better ones we've toured. It's very large and has a lot of period pieces as well as original pieces. Great tour.

we did the special dinner package and tour for the fall pilgrimage and loved it. the food was great, interesting people at the table to talk to, and a lot of great stories from the hostess. the service was perfect and the house is an ideal setting for a several course meal with wine pairings... don't miss it!

As a Disney-holic....I had to see the model of the Haunted Mansion. That aside, this mansion was stunning. A must see on the tours of the homes. Very important.....the guides were friendly and didn't act like Ms. Danvers ( anyone over 50 will get this).

We visited not only Stanton Hall, but all of the " mansion's " in Natchez Mississippi. We found them to be all very interesting building's. They were a big contrast to other housing in the community. The mansion tour is well worth if you are in the Natchez area.

This house takes up almost a full city block in the city, and is furnished with period Natchez antiques. Guided tours are offered for a fee.
