it is interesting. How can nothing but old columns, standing in a woods be interesting? I don't know, but I like the place. Peaceful. Try it for yourself.

“Very interesting place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Old plantation ruins from a fire. It was untouched by the Civil War, but burned done later. It is very eerie seeing the old columns and imagining what a grand place it was.

“Haunting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Haunting is about the best word to use for this site. Not so much as in ghosts, but like a song from the past that keeps running though your mind and you can't quite catch the lyrics. Hardto find but worth the search. Secluded even in the day time. Family cemetery is close at Latitude: 31.94470, Longitude: -91.12310. Circular staircase is at Alcorn University. Didn't know this until later, would love to have seen it!

“interesting site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Windsor ruins are one of the most photographed sites in the state of Mississippi The ruins are a haunting reminder of times long gone and should not be missed. However, visitors should be aware that the ruins are very out of the way. There is no staff on site and the only security you should expect to see is an occassional visit from the county sheriff's department. Don't let this discourage you from visiting during the day, but I would not want to be there after dark. On our last visit, in 2010, there were clear signs that the parking area was being used as a late night "party" place by local youth.

“Interesting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Neat place. Fun for photographers! The weather was rainy/cloudy both times that I went so it made for great but creepy photos! It's kind of hard to find but it's a fun road trip for sure. If you live in Mississippi you must go at least once!
