Overview

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.

My wife and I visited several antebellum homes while in Natchez this past December. If you're planning 3 tours or more, I would definitely include Stanton Hall. You should probably plan your tour around lunch and then dine at the adjoining Carriage House Restaurant. Delicious!...More

Learned some history at this location. It was very informative and breathtaking. Worth the time. It took about 40 or so minutes for the tour. Absolutely gorgeous historic home.

This historic home, now a museum, has many wonderful pieces of antiques from the great antebellum period. A must see either before or after eating at The Carriage House Restaurant on the grounds.

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.

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.
