Natchez, Mississippi, the oldest town on the Mississippi River, flourished after the arrival of the first steamboat in 1811. Beautiful antebellum mansions serve as reminders of the town's early plantation days. Stanton Hall, pictured here, was completed in 1858 and named after its original owner, who spared no expense in importing materials and constructing the estate.
This Greek Revival plantation home, designed by James Lull, is situated on ten acres of lawn, gardens, and orchards, with lush trees and cotton fields nearby.
The last great mansion built in Natchez prior to the War Between the States.
