About this Business
From Our Editors
A visit to Bluff Park in Natchez demonstrates why the town attracted the French in the 18th century and why it then became the capital of the Mississippi Territory: the riverside cliffs offer a clear strategic military advantage. Today, the high vantage point above the Mississippi River is cherished for its stunning, panoramic beauty rather than its defensive position. Nearby, horse-drawn carriages set off from Canal and Washington and go clip-clopping down the streets.Throughout town, beneath boughs of oak trees dripping with spanish moss, dozens of antebellum mansions show off their Greek Revivalist columns and wide-brimmed straw hats affixed to chimneys to combat the southern sun. Several restored mansions open their doors year-round for tours, but many remain private residences to this day. Near the river, the Natchez Museum of African American History and Culture illustrates the history of slavery in the region through historical artifacts and turn-of-the-century portraiture.
