My Journey Into The Heart of Southern Belle Country: The Homes

Natchez has many beautiful antebellum homes.  We only saw four of them.  One was more beautiful than the next.  The most interesting might be Longwood.  This house was being built with the Civil War broke out and the house was never finished.

My Journey Into The Heart of Southern Belle Country: Natchez

I really did not know what to expect when I got to Natchez but, WOW!  Natchez is an interesting city with lots of history and lots of antebellum homes.  There is no interstate only state highways, they have a mall and a hospital, they are a connecting city between Mississippi and Louisiana, and I’m sure their tourism does pretty good.  But for the most part it is small town USA.  And that is one of the things that makes it so great,  overlooking the Mississippi River makes it even more beautiful.  We were there in spring and the weather was perfect, I can not image it in the summer.  In downtown Natchez one building after the next is just amazingly beautiful.  The Catholic Cathedral in Natachez is georgous from the outside in.  I would like to go back and really take more time to look around the downtown area.  Walk the streets and really take in some of its history.
