FALL PILGRIMAGE: J.N. STONE HOUSE c. 1850
Acquired in 1877 by Joseph Newman Stone, this home has remained in the Stone family for 145 years. The Billiard Hall is the oldest part of this Natchez Historic Inn that served as the Stanton family’s private social gathering place. The J.N. Stone House boasts rare pocket doors, ornamental glasswork, and colonnaded galleries that were joined on all sides by a substantial wood balustrade with sawn balusters resembling an hourglass form.
- Heart pine comprises the floor while cypress is the primary wood used in the beams, elaborate trim, shutters, and doors, with the door retaining the original lockset.
- Ornamented etched stained glass
- Original intricately pierced plaster medallion adorning the ceiling is identical to one in the main hall at historic Rosalie.
- Period four-light gasolier mounted with a miniature replica of the world-famous sculpture “Apollo Belvidere”.
- Heirloom garments, lap desk, and portraits throughout the home
