For an extensive tour of graceful antebellum homes, Natchez, Mississippi, once the epicenter of cotton production in the region, is the place to begin this Mississippi vacation. Many of the region's private homes and gardens are open for visits. This antebellum road trip begins on a horse-drawn carriage that whisks you past Natchez's landmark churches and homes, including the Gothic-revival style St. Mary's Basilica, and Trinity Episcopal Church, home to Tiffany-designed windows. Antebellum homes to visit on this Natchez trip include Stanton Hall, Greek-revival Dunleith, and Longwood. Be sure to make your way over to the Mississippi River waterfront and Natchez-Under-the-Hill, with its restaurants, shops, and gambling at the Isle of Capri Casino. Finally, head south on US 61 to the quaint town of Woodville, Mississippi, where Rosemont Plantation, boyhood home of Jefferson Davis, features antique furnishings and objects circa mid-1800s.
