  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Could be a better infra at the place
  • Detailed historical information on display.

Where to stay in Natchez

Check out the downtown area by the river for the biggest variety of accommodations in Natchez. The town has some very interesting properties to choose from, including 19th-century plantation houses, converted now into guesthouses with spectacular dining rooms and lush grounds. Down by the water, you'll find some grand old hotels, with extras like onsite restaurants and casinos. If you're on a budget, check out the motels located roadside to the east and south of the city center.
