If you’re interested in pre-civil war history, check this place out. The rangers give a great tour of the house explaining the plantation’s history as well as the way of life in historic Natchez. A must see for history buffs.

The US Park Service owns and maintains this property. The sparse arrangement of furnishings around the edge of a dark hall is depressing. The furnishings are not original or special. The tour was my least favorite of seven in the area of Natchez.

Melrose is one of the great stately mansions of Natchez, now run by the National Park Service. Filled with period antiques and furnishings, this house was breathtakingly beautiful, painstakingly kept, and worth a visit by anyone who loves history. Excellent tour guide.

Very ornate inside. I like them grand but not so much guilding or gold color. Grounds are fairly small now.
