Visited here whilst we were staying in Natchez and it took us a 20 minute car ride over the bridge across the Mississippi into Louisiana, an opportunity to see how the cotton industry worked in the 1815s right through to the modern industry today. A...More

This place is a few miles from Natchez, MS on the US-84. It's well signposted. There is a small car park to the right of reception. It's a rare opportunity to see how a cotton mill operated in the 1800s compared with today. The tour...More

Rhonda, our tour guide, was phenomenal! Her enthusiasm made the tour. This is a great place with enough outbuildings to really set the stage for a good understanding of the cotton plantation.

This is not your average plantation tour highlighting a beautiful home, you get a real feel of the working side of a plantation. The slave quarters were very interesting along with the implements they used for daily living. The food that they ate & how...More

This plantation has a very different feeling than others ( Boone, Wormsloe, Oak Alley). This is not about a beautiful Manor House, an oak alley or Spanish moss. It's all about the cotton in past and present. They have cotton growing on the old site...More

I was there in May and the fields were bare. You might want to try calling them and see if perhaps they can give you a date when they pick the cotton. Even if you don't get to pick you will learn so much. I really enjoyed... More
