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.

This is a must for mansion tours, $15 per person but worth it. Inside is worth seeing as is the outside grounds with magnificent oak trees. Attached Carriage House restaurant is closed for some time although you can make reservations through internet. Get tickets from gift store.

This was our second favorite home to tour in Natchez. Very nice. Be sure and take notice of the huge front door. Large hallways and a lovely story of the ladies that lived there.

This was my favorite antebellum home. It was huge! The furnishings were amazing. The mirrors have a great story behind them....ask! The colors and décor were beautiful. You will learn a lot about the history of what it was like. Ask about the tall windows. This is one you don't want to miss.

We got spoiled with going the the Longwood first and being able to walk in all of the rooms. At Stanton Hall, you can not enter any of the bedrooms. They are roped off so you are forced to stand out in the hall and hear the story that is being told to you by the guide. You get to... More

We visited Stanton Hall and loved it! A very nice home to tour. Our tour guide was very nice and very informative. She was patient and kind with the people in our group. This tour requires walking up several steps on the front, back and on the interior of the home. Some in our group had a terrible time on... More

This house is well taken care of and has some classy tour guides. The tour guides are knowledgeable and tell the story of this beautiful house without theatrics or drawn out explanations. On the 2nd floor they explain the details and let you wander. Don't miss this one while you are on town!
