Travel Tips for Natchez

Adams County, Mississippi

by Stephen-KarenConn

Natchez is the seat of Adams County, named for John Adams, second president of the United States. It is the oldest of the 82 counties in Mississippi, having been created in 1799, eighteen years before Mississippi became a state. Four Mississippi governors have hailed from Adams County: David Holmes, George Poindexter, John A. Quitman, and Gerard Brandon.

The estimated population of Adams County in 2004 was 32,591. This was a decrease of -5.09% from the 2000 census. As in so many counties in Mississippi, people seem to be moving to other parts of the country to find jobs. Natchez is far from being the poorest county in Mississippi, yet the per capita income is only about 74% of the national average.

I find it interesting that this grand old city, once the most prosperous locale in America, has never recovered from the devastation of the War Between the States and the so-called "reconstruction." Yet other southern cities - Atlanta for example - was literally burned to the ground during the War, yet has risen like a Phoenix to surpass many cities in the North.

Pilgrimage

by Helga67

Every year, about thirty antebellum mansions, many of them private residences, open their doors to visitors during a five-week Pilgrimage every Spring and Fall.
Listen to the stories these venerable historic houses tell. Guided tours are conducted daily by hoopskirted hostesses who interpret the rooms, furnishings and history of each house.

Just another picture of the...

Just another picture of the Natchez Trace. It is beautiful drive in fall. Here Native Americans walked with Kentucks, and River Men for hundreds of years. I walked this too several times, got a lot of sticky mud on the bottom of my shoes too.

Monmouth Plantation

by Stephen-KarenConn

I list Monmouth Plantation both as an accommodations tip and also under "things to do" because it is open for tours to the public and is not for lodging guests only.

Monmouth was built by John Hankinson in 1818 and General John A. Quitman purchased the plantation eight years later. Quitman was a hero of the Mexican War and also served as the first governor of Mississippi. Although he was originally from New York, Quitman was a strong advocate of secession. He died before the eruption of the War Between the States. When Natchez was occupied by Northern troops they remembered Quitman’s sympathies and treated Monmouth roughly. His daughters were forced to pledge loyalty to the Union in order to save Monmouth from destruction. The estate remained in Quitman’s family for almost a century, until just after his daughter Rose died in 1914.

The current owners of Monmouth, Ron and Lani Riches, have restored the plantation to its antebellum glory. Visitors see not only the mansion, but also the equally impressive 26 acres of magnificently landscaped grounds, dominated by Southern Live Oaks, draped with Spanish Moss and bejeweled with ponds, statuary and gazebos. Tours are available daily.
