Natchez is a quaint community and the NHP is a must stop! Great interpretation of the antebellum homes of the south! Very informative visitors Center! What is also great is that the Natchez parkway starts here and goes all the way to Nashville

The Natchez National Historical Park will give you a taste of the local area in ante bellum and post-Civil War Mississippi. The great house tour is outstanding. The Park Rangers are very knowledgeable and youngster-friendly. Walk the grounds and take lots of pics.
