I specifically wanted to see the original slave cabin which might have housed 3 families (about 15 enslaved people.) It's the only original slave cabin in Natchez. Melrose was a private residence and not a plantation, but it's worth the trip. The gift shop ranger...More

Natchez has so many beautiful homes to tour with rich history. Melrose is a beautiful home to tour with beautiful grounds.

We did not expect much from a Park Service property with a low admittance of $10 for adults/$5 seniors. We were blown away with the exquisitely furnished home. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. This is a must see in Natchez!

This place had a lot of original pieces and was kept up. The inside was beautiful and the grounds had other buildings (carriage house, slave quarters ;etc). It's free to tour the grounds but you must pay to go inside. It's worth it.

This is a part of the Natchez National Historic Park, and it no longer looks like the many photos on the Internet. The whitewashed columns have been painted to look like marble stucco. Not a big deal. The tour of the mansion is not all...More
