Overview

Boasting over 500 houses, churches, and other buildings pre-dating the Civil War, Natchez, Mississippi, is one of a few Southern towns that has produced and preserved such a rich architectural heritage.

With its uncompromised attention to architecture and style, Natchez follows in the tradition of Cottages by the Sea and Charleston Style. It is a sumptuous entrée to the houses and gardens that abound in this richly historic, deeply Southern town that draws thousands of visitors each year. The houses captured in all their glory and charm include Auburn, Longwood, Magnolia Hall, Landsdowne, and more. A unique celebration of architecture, style, history, and some "good old-fashioned Southern hospitality," Natchez is an illustrious and splendid look at the "jewel by the river" and a must-have for both the residents and the tourists who make Natchez a popular destination year after year.
