Rosalie is one of the oldest mansions in Natchez Ms. We took the full tour of the home & loved it. The home has around 80% of the original furnishings & was built in 1822 on old french Fort Rosalie. Don't pass this one up!

Rosalie Mansion does not have your typical history story of lost money after the Civil War. When word came that the Union Army would be arriving in Natchez, the family hid pieces of their furniture in the river bluffs. The Union army occupied the house, allowed the mother and daughter to stay there during the occupation, and made sure the women has three meals a day. I found it interesting that the mansion is owned by the DAR and not a Civil War organization.

Rosalie sits on the Bluff commanding great views of the Mississippi.The family history was interesting .The grounds need a bit of work doing on them as the gardens appear a bit neglected .
The guide was efficient ,informative but not very consumer friendly .

This house is on the banks of the Mississippi River. This is likely the reason why the Union Army chose it as its regional headquarters during the Civil War. Interestingly, the wife and children of the owner continued to stay there!

I visited during the Spring Pilgrimage. I recommend picking a different time to visit since it won't be as crowded and it will be cheaper.

Parking is available in the back and front of the home.

I highly recommend ringing the bell from the USS Mississippi as you exit. Gong!

My advice: Skip Stanton Hall and come to Rosalie instead. I also recommend Elgin (only during Pilgrimage) and Auburn (Tues-Sat only).

This was the first stop on my tour of homes in Natchez and it is not to be missed. Our guide, Theresa was fantastic. She knew the history of the home as well as the area. The house was interesting and has a great view of the Mississippi!
