Ramada on the Hill

by hotelhunter

Why is it that every time I try to look for rates at the Ramada I am given another hotel and a different location. Is the Ramada closed or what?

Re: Ramada on the Hill

by grandmaR

According to the Ramada website, they don't have that hotel in that location. All there is in Natchez MS is a Days Inn. They have the Ramada Hattiesburg Inn on the Hill but it is in Hattiesburg

Re: Ramada on the Hill

I believe that the Ramada on the Hill is now the Grand Soleil...see

"The old Ramada on the hill is now the Grand Soleil, and the one below is something else, some other franchise. The Soleil was suppose to have a drive coming behind the smaller one to the boat, which isn't going to happen."

Note the comment about the old Ramada here - http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g60910-d1588083-Reviews-Grand_Soleil_Casino_Resort-Natchez_Mississippi.html

For a different view, look at

for a view of the collapse of hill that the Ramada was on (it looks like that they hadn't had time to change the name yet)...

Travel Tips for Natchez

The Mississippi River

by VeronicaG

I discovered some fascinating facts about the Mississippi River. I had no idea that one of the rivers that passes by my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa. is one of two tributaries helping to form old Miss--the Ohio River; the other is the Illinois River.

The Mississippi River flows through ten states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. This river, which is the second longest in the United States, runs for a length of over 2,300 miles. Its source is Lake Itasca in Minnesota.

FYI:The name, Mississippi, comes from an Algonquian Indian word meaning "father of waters."

Hernando De Soto and his exploration party were the first Europeans to see this river in 1541.

During the Civil War, control of this river was of the utmost importance, a move wisely taken by the Union Army

Flora

by Helga67

If you have the chance of visiting Natchez around April, than you can enjoy the many azaleas blossoming in the many gardens of the beautiful antebellum houses.
The live oak trees can be admired all year round. These are the most majestical trees in the south of the US.

If You're in the South--it's Pralines!

by VeronicaG

Believe or not, I've only recently been introduced to Pralines...but I am a great fan of these scrumptious treats.

"praline--a confection made of nuts, often almonds, and sugar cooked until carmelized; a cookie size confection originating in New Orleans chiefly made of brown sugar, pecans and butter".

As we toured house to house, this woman seemed to appear out of nowhere. She was duly stationed at several of the homes we visited--after a time I was worn down and decided to try her pralines. Oh my goodness, so glad I didn't resist! These sugary delights were absolutely wonderful and comparable to any we sampled in New Orleans. I brought a box home, which I shared with some friends.

The charge: $10 per box

Melrose Plantation

by Stephen-KarenConn

Melrose Plantation, built beginning in 1841, is the most completely preserved plantation we saw on our visit to Natchez. It was one of five plantations once owned by a wealthy attorney and cotton planter, John T. McMurran. Today the house, outbuildings and 80 surrounding acres are owned and operated by the National Park Service as a part of the Natchez National Historic Park.

The grounds still have two original slave houses and other domestic outbuildings such as a well house, privy, barn and carriage house. A very interesting part of the story we heard on our tour at Melrose is that the original owners only lived here during the cooler half of the year, and spent their summers in such places as Newport, Rhode Island; Greenbrier, West Virginia or touring Europe. During their extended absences they left their slaves to take care of the place. Some of the slaves at Melrose were so devoted that even after Emancipation they stayed at Melrose voluntarily as servants.

After the death of Melrose's owner in 1883, the house was left in the care of former slaves, Jane Johnson and Alice Sims. These two women lived in and maintained the house for about 30 years. They protected the property, resisting repeated attempts from would-be looters to remove fine furnishings. Both Sims and Johnson played vital roles in the restoration of the property by new owners George M.D. and Ethel Moore Kelly who bought the house in the early 20th century. Former slave Alice Sims died at age 96, in the 1930's and Jane Johnson at the age of 103, in the 1940s.

Guided tours of the home, offered daily except Thanksgiving and Christmas, give visitors a glimpse into the lifestyle of the antebellum American South and help them understand the roles that slaves played in an estate setting.
