2019 Historic Homes Tour
September 27 – October 14

Established in 1716, high on a magnificent bluff, overlooking the Mighty Mississippi, Natchez avoided the destruction during the Civil War and more than 600 examples of Antebellum Architecture still remain. During our Pilgrimage seasons, more privately owned historic homes open their doors than any other time of the year. Today, Natchez is treasured worldwide as a living museum of southern history and a hallmark of hospitality.
