Visited here whilst we were staying in Natchez and it took us a 20 minute car ride over the bridge across the Mississippi into Louisiana, an opportunity to see how the cotton industry worked in the 1815s right through to the modern industry today. A warm welcome from the two ladies Rhonda and Lyn who acted as our guides both... More

This place is a few miles from Natchez, MS on the US-84. It's well signposted. There is a small car park to the right of reception. It's a rare opportunity to see how a cotton mill operated in the 1800s compared with today. The tour price is $15 and they offer a continual tour so you are not waiting for... More

Frogmore is an historic cotton plantation about seven miles west of the Mississippi River. Driving from Natchez, the signs are small but well marked. The plantation consists of a small plantation house (private), a store, a small theater, out buildings, slaves' quarters, and an old cotton gin. Several structures date to the 1700's. The guide's are friendly and knowledgeable. The... More

What a terrific place! We arrived as walk-ins on opening day for the season, along with 3 busloads of tourists from the Midwest. Things were a bit chaotic, but Lynn, one of the docents, took good care of us. We actually took the tour twice as the initial tour had to be abbreviated because of the bus schedule. We saw... More

Our River Cruise ship stopped in Natchez for the day and my wife and I decided to take the Frogmore Plantation tour. Lynette Tanner, the owner, was our guide. The tour ended up being part cotton plantation and part slavery history. Lynette is very knowledgeable and very passionate about both. The first part of the tour was primarily about the... More

Rhonda, our tour guide, was phenomenal! Her enthusiasm made the tour. This is a great place with enough outbuildings to really set the stage for a good understanding of the cotton plantation.

THANK YOU to Lynette (and her mother) and Buddy Tanner for a living history lesson! Thank you for keeping and restoring parts of our past while showing us present day cotton farming! To understand cotton, you MUST HAVE THIS "hands on" experience of touching, and picking and deseeding the cotton plant. We were on a tour off of the American... More

This is not your average plantation tour highlighting a beautiful home, you get a real feel of the working side of a plantation. The slave quarters were very interesting along with the implements they used for daily living. The food that they ate & how they prepared it. The simple church. I especially liked the demonstration of how cotton was... More

This plantation has a very different feeling than others ( Boone, Wormsloe, Oak Alley). This is not about a beautiful Manor House, an oak alley or Spanish moss. It's all about the cotton in past and present. They have cotton growing on the old site so you can see, touch and smell. The slave cabins bring you back to a... More
