Travel Tips for Natchez

Great view

by Helga67

As Natchez is perched 200 feet above the Mississippi River on the highest promontory north of the Gulf of Mexico, you'll have some great views of the Mississippi river. This view was taken from the hotel where we were staying.

Oh my, it's grits... again

by VeronicaG

Breakfast was provided each morning at The Burn, where we lodged. Grits appeared on our plates daily, soon to be followed by other eats.

"grits--coarsley ground hominy, usually boiled and served for breakfast or as a side dish"

I don't find grits particularly appealing, but I did eat most of what was on my plate. I guess it goes back to my "clean plate club" days as a child. But...when in Rome (or Natchez, to be exact).

Southerners love this stuff--why? I can't imagine!

Great Sun's Mound

by Stephen-KarenConn

The most prominent of the mounds at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians is the Great Sun's Mound. "Great Sun" was the title of the hereditary chief of the Natchez tribe. His house stood atop this mound, giving him a commanding view and also lifting him above his followers.

An archeological excavation in 1962 revealed that the mound was built in at least four different stages. It is believed that each stage was built by a successive chief, each building his house a little higher than the one before him.

Elizabeth Female Academy Ruins

by Stephen-KarenConn

These ruins are all that is left of the Elizabeth Female Academy, the first college for women in the state of Mississippi.

The school operated from 1818-1845 and primarily served the emerging upper class of Natchez society. The famous naturalist and artist John James Audubon once taught here. One of the graduates was Varina Howell, who would later marry Jefferson Davis, the future President of the Confederate States of America. The Academy closed after the Capitol of Mississippi was moved from the nearby community of Washington, Mississippi to Jackson.

This very interesting historic site is about 4.7 miles northwest of Natchez, and is best reached via the Natchez Trace Parkway.

Grand Village of the Natchez Indians

by leafmcgowan

A religious structure once stood atop the Temple Mound and housed bones of previous chiefs (called Suns). A sacred perpetual fire was kept in the Temple's inner sanctum, symbolic of the sun, from which the royal family had descended. The 128-acre Grand Village site features a museum, a reconstructed Natchez Indian house, and three ceremonial mounds. Two of the mounds, the Great Sun's Mound, and the Temple Mound, have been excavated and rebuilt to their original sizes and shapes. A third mound, called the Abandoned Mound, has been only partially excavated. After three major archaeological excavations at the Grand Village by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, no more digging investigations are planned for the site. The unexcavated areas of the site will be preserved intact, representing a sort of "time capsule" from the Natchez Indian's past.
