Overview
More
N 1858, Frederick Stanton built the home of his dreams for his family on his new property - an entire city block of Natchez, Mississippi. The city block cost about $1,550. The house cost over $83,000 before it was even furnished. Carrera Marble, mahogany doors 2 1/2 inches thick, candeliers from France, and Italian statuary appointed the interior. Huge Corinthian columns and granite steps adorned the facade. Stanton came to America with his brothers in 1815. He made a fortune as a cotton broker, then as owner of more than 16,000 acres of cotton plantations. Ironically, he lived only one month after his dream home was finished. ...Now inside view of the Carriage House Restaurant Stanton Hall housed a college for young ladies for a short time, then fell into dissarray to some extent before the Pilgrimage Garden Club renewed the antebellum mansion to much of its former glory. It stands today, filled with original and like antique furnishings as Frederick originally created it, a showcase for the world to see. Daily tours are given of the home, and during Spring and Fall Pilgrimages hostesses dress in antebellum costume to greet the throngs of visitors. After the tour, many stop to have lunch at the adjacent Carriage House Restaurant, which is nationally famous for its fine Southern cuisine. Stanton Hall is listed as an official National Historic Landmark.

Really worth a visit. Unlike some of the other places this one is fully furnished. The guides in beautiful period costume provide great information on each room. Loved the furniture that is original. A lot of thought and care has gone into this home.

Took a very worthwhile 30 minute tour (enough with little kids) of Stanton hall, one of the many antebellum homes in Natchez. It's beautifully restored and well looked after.

When you visit you go back in time and see your self living in the lap of luxury. Excellent and informative guide. A big thanks to Pilgrimage Garden Club for their excellent work. A must visit.

We were surprised to be able to tour the home on Thanksgiving day, but they were open for tours after eating lunch at the carriage house, so we toured. The home was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Many of the lighting fixtures, all fireplace mantles, and...More

Very educational tour guide. What amazed us was that it had 90% of the original furniture!! It's also one of a few homes with the kitchen attached to the home.

Stanton Hall architecture is impressive. Very few original furnishings left in the house. The tour went very quickly.

This was probably my least favorite tour out of 4 Antebellum homes because our tour guide lacked personality. She was dressed rather frompy and was not very informative about the family/house history. She knew more about who made the furniture throughout the house than she...More

We paid $15.00 for an adult ticket but we bought a package to see 3 estates so we saved a little. Bought tickets at the visitor center.
