#11 of 11 in Historic Sites 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.

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.
