#27 of 29 in Things to do in Natchez
There are eight historic buildings, dating back to 1819, that sit on 40 acres of beautiful manicured lawn, complete with Spanish moss-covered Live Oak trees and azaleas. Behind the buildings lays the 40-acre T.J. Foster Memorial Nature Trail, which is made of three hiking paths and runs down to St. Catherine Creek. The longest trail is about a mile long, but hilly and rugged. The site is FREE and open to the public.
