Ravenna is an early 19th century Greek Revival mansion nestled among three acres of lush gardens and woods in the historic district of downtown Natchez.  Constructed in 1835-36 by the renowned Neibert & Gemmell contracting firm as the residence of prominent entrepreneur, William Harris, Ravenna boasts a unique structural form, making it one of the most architecturally significant early Greek Revival mansions in Natchez.

Ravenna’s outstanding architectural features include a stunning elliptical stairway and a central hallway arch supported by paired Doric columns. The use of superimposed orders, the first-story Doric and the Second-story Ionic, on the matching front and rear galleries is unique for Natchez architecture. The house’s three-story form with undercut double-tiered galleries is known to exist on only one other Natchez residence.  Ravenna is one of the original Pilgrimage homes!

Step into America’s history through stories of the family who still live in this home built by their great-great-grandparents in 1853, on land first occupied by family members since the 1780s.  Lansdowne has been occupied by descendants of the original builder since its inception.  At the entrance of Lansdowne, wide steps rise from a brick pavement, flanked by aged carriage mounting blocks.  Mid-nineteenth-century Zuber wallpaper adorns the parlor with its intricate designs and delicate colors. Gorgeous treasured family heirlooms are displayed throughout the home, including a children’s playhouse with antique doll furnishings and a miniature wood-burning stove.  Hear how “King” David Hunt’s daughter, Charlotte, confronted Union Soldiers who broke into the home in 1865.
