Overview
More
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.

Not as great others, as it is a bed and breakfast, too. Could only view a few rooms. There are others much better.

This house is another must see in Natchez. It takes up an entire city block. The front door is 12ft tall...you feel pretty small standing in front of it. The inside is simply beautiful and the tour guides are quite knowledgeable.

I have been to Natchez many times but had never actually toured Stanton Hall until my recent trip. Wonderful mansion and guide. They recently have gotten more of the original furnishings back which makes it even more special in my opinion.

Great way to spend a rainy day. Great tour. I have visited several plantations and mansions. This is one of the best! You get to see most of the house and very informative.

This home was one of few that has more original items than replicas. It was cool that this was also home to a school at one point. Also it was sad to hear the owner who had the home built only lived there for 9...More

This property is owned and maintained by the local Garden Club, and they have done a remarkable job of assembling original furnishings and maintaining the property. Definitely worth a visit. Our docent was wonderful. Good gift shop, too.

Chuck was our guide and he was amazing. Full of energy and knowledge, he made the past of the house come to life. I would return again and again. Highly recommend.

We paid $15.00 for an adult ticket but we bought a package to see 3 estates so we saved a little. Bought tickets at the visitor center.
