More About Natchez

A little more about Natchez, Mississippi.


 It's at the southern end of the Natchez Trace where groups from the north gathered to begin their return trip after having ridden down the Mississippi River in flatboats or larger vessels.


Lovely gracious Southern homes abound in the old down town area.


Another point of interest in Natchez is the Great Sun Ceremonial Mound.  Here is a link to more information about the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians and the Ceremonial Mound.



Boys and Girls, that is your history lesson for today.

Lovely! I wish we'd had time to make a visit to the area before we moved away from the South!
