Longwood, Natchez

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
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. Use our Natchez vacation builder to add Longwood and other attractions to your Natchez vacation plans.

  • 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.
  • Unfinished house. It would have been one of the biggest and incredible mansion if finished. The war decided the house would stay like this. You can visit the unfinished floors that is the most interesting thing of the visit.
  • Interesting story. Well worth the effort.
  • Awsome, unfinished showed old world craftsmanship.
