  • This is a very unassuming place, with just placards to read and the cement circle with the old chains attached. But, I believe it is a must. I could almost tangibly feel the sorrow of this place We sh...  more »

  • So disappointed that the Forks of the Roads Monument, memorializing Natchez's prominent role in slave commerce, is nothing more than a corner with a few exhibit boards to read, and the shackles in cem...  more »

  • When visiting be sure to go across to Miss Lou Heritage an request Jeremy to give a tour/history on Forks of the Road. Great tour, significant history to Natchez being it was the second largest slave trading post in the U. S.
  • A reminder to the inhumanity that happened here on this soil. It makes yourself crawl to sit there and read what our for father's did to other humans.
  • Wonderful information about the slave trade. May be more reading than most would prefer. It's a quick stop, no more than 20 minutes. Much of the information seemed to center around places other than Natchez
  • As a Natchezian, I was not aware of how much of America's history started right here at this monumental place. I love learning new things about my history and culture and the Forks of the Road taught me a lot about that.
  • Great little stop, well worth the visit. Free, no cost to see this memorial.
