Travel Tips for Natchez

Natchez Visitor Centre

by keeweechic

The Visitor Center is the first place you should go to. Its huge and you can’t miss it (hwy US84) overlooking the Mississippi and open 7 days (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. They have 24 hr restrooms, atms and will make bookings for you, They screen a 20 minute film about Natchez as well. You can also tour the photo exhibits and view a topical map of the area. All the brochures and maps you will need are there and you can help yourself to a free coke or coffee. If you cross the highway that its on and go over to the Ramada Hotel high on the opposite hill, go around the back and you will get a fabulous view of the Mississippi and the bridge.

History

by Helga67

Natchez is the oldest civilized settlement on the Mississippi river - older by two years than New Orleans. For centuries, it was inhabited by prehistoric Indians and later by the Natchez Indians. The first 'white' men arrived in 1716.

In 1798, Natchez became the first capital of the Mississippi Territory, and in 1817, became the first capital of the new state of Mississippi. The city boomed in the first half of the 19th century with the exportation of tons of cotton by steamboat - cotton grown on plantations in Mississippi and across the river in the rich Louisiana lowlands.

Enormous fortunes were made from the area's natural resources: the land and the river. Cotton was king, money was plentiful and men spent it - particularly on dazzling mansions filled with the finest furnishings money could buy.

Today , Natchez is one of the most desirable small cities in the United States.

Grand Village of the Natchez Indians

by Stephen-KarenConn

Before European settlers came to the area that is today known as Natchez, it was inhabited by people of the Natchez Indian tribe. Just south of the city is a state operated archeological site, Grand Village of the Natchez Indians, which preserves a bit of their history and culture. It is a National Historic Landmark and admission is free.

There is a Visitor Center and a small museum and gift shop here. However, the main attraction is a series of ancient Indian ceremonial mounds, a plaza, and a re-constructed Indian dwelling. The site is located on the banks of the Natchez River, and was still in use, but already in decline, when the first French explorers came to the area in the early 1700s.

We enjoyed taking a very interesting self-guided walk here. Interpretative signs help explain the sights along the way.

Natchez Indian House and Granary

by Stephen-KarenConn

On the grounds of the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians is a reconstructed house like those the Indians built of locally gathered materials. It has mud walls, dirt floor, pole beams and a thatched grass roof. Watch out for wasps if you are here in warm weather.

Beside the house is a granary which would have been used to store surplus grain. There is also a small pole and thatch structure which would have been used as a drying platform, as well as to provide shade.

The Natchez Indians were not nomads, but lived in permanent houses and grew crops which included corn, beans and squash. They also hunted, fished and gathered wild edibles.
