I was expecting much more from this site given the history of slave trading in the area. Too bad there isn't more respect given to this site. Not much to see just a couple of signs and a small kiosk. The small shackles in concrete...More

We saw information about this at the Natchez Visitor Center and our tour guide talked about it on our Open Air Tour. We made sure that we went to see it while in Natchez. This is like maybe 10 minutes of your time and that...More

This expanded on the exhibit at the Visitor's Center and may have given me a clue on my mystery ancestry.
