When we arrived we picked up a map at the office. As we were driving around we noticed round signs with numbers. We soon realized that the numbered signs did not coincide with the numbers on the map. So we ended up ignoring the signs...More

We went to see the annual Turning Angel. The walking tour was excellent, then we went back the next day to see the same places in the daylight and listen to a CD about the tour. Plan to go back next year.

I don't like cemeteries, who does? This was a very interesting and actually pretty cemetery. I enjoyed driving and walking the ground, it has beautiful architectural design. If you have time get in and get out quickly!!!!

We find cemeteries, especially in the south, to be mesmerizing and help us understand local history. We are always awed by the epitaphs and scope of lives in rest and this cemetery did not disappoint.

This is a very large and very old cemetery overlooking Natchez and the Mississippi River. It consists of both the Natchez city cemetery and national cemetery. The grounds are immaculately kept. The narrow one way streets can be a challenge, but are worth the navigation.

We went to the Natchez cemetery on the suggestion of the owner of the B&B where we stayed, and were very touched by the solemnity of the area, its cleanliness, and the history (by US standards) that are evidenced there. Worth an hour or two...More

I really do not know this answer. If I were you, I would contact the Natchez Historical Society. There is a small building that I think is staffed during the week. We were there on the weekend, so could not tell you the... More
