Longwood, Natchez

4.6
The largest octagonal mansion in the United States, Longwood, was never fully completed. Admire the exterior, which was designed by Samuel Sloan as an Oriental villa with a Byzantine-style dome. The first floor's opulent rooms were restored to reflect their antebellum beginnings. You also can explore the unfinished second floor and basement. The first floor often hosts events, such as weddings and conventions, so check in advance to make sure the mansion is open to the public during your visit. If you book a tour package that includes Stanton Hall, you'll have the chance to see two Mississippi landmarks followed by some fine dining at Stanton Hall's Carriage House restaurant.

    This House is always in memory because it is unique since not completed for many years and it attaches a little to this family who went bankrupt when others have found freedom.

    Being able to see what is behind the finished walls of many area mansions was fascinating! Since only the first floor was completed, the brick walls are exposed from the second floor up. Many ingenious architectural details were planned for this house: such as sliding pocket shutters! The lower floors are 10,000 feet each. And the girls bedroom floor with sitting rooms and huge closets ... to die for!

    One of my favorite of all of the Natchez houses. Don't miss the cemetery located close to the house.

    Although unfinished, this is a beautiful home. Great tour of the home to learn about it's history.
