We could just walk up to the Mansion. It was closed. From people who took pictures in the park we learned: not enough staff available. They currently open for visitors only 3 days a week. That information was not available when I did my research upfront.

A grand old house and gardens and one that best typifies life when Natchez was one of the major centres of the States economy - many homes in Natchez but this is one of the better ones

I have completed a few plantation tours and I really liked this one. It may not have the murderous stories that some have, but it was still rich with interesting history. The guide was exceptionally knowledgable and offered just the right amount of information at a good pace. The fact that you can take pictures inside is so nice. Most... More

Nice house with interesting stories. We were shown around by a park ranger. She was very nice but a little dry for the grandkids. The recent renovations were apparently a major undertaking. Enjoyed the ground very much. Had the nicest grounds of all the homes we visited in town. They have a much larger staff than the other homes and... More

The House itself is average but the furniture and decor are the things to see. The most interesting sight however is the slave quarters. Best value.

In my view the house itself was not too impressive (in comparison with other historic homes there), But the whole lot of land adjacent to it was nice place for a walk. The house was kind of too dark

Great historical tour. Interesting details and facts to be learned. The tour of the slave quarters was the most interesting part to me. So many interesting facts to absorb.

Guided tours are conducted by knowledgeable National Park Service guides on the hour, except at noon. The $10 adult admission fee is reasonable, but bring cash because credit cards are not accepted, nor are America the Beautiful passes. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and takes you through this antebellum mansion that has been beautifully restored and preserved with 85%... More
