Natchez Anniversary Trip | Part 1Thursday, December 03, 2015
Doesn't it look like he's staring out the window wistfully while I'm on the outside? ha!
On Saturday, we drove over to St. Francisville, but on Saturday evening and Sunday we hung around Natchez and did a little exploring. It was wet and cold but we it didn't really matter... we could do whatever we wanted.
The charm in Natchez does not stop. I mean look at these rooflines and there are so many gorgeous old houses that date back to the Civil War or before.
We also toured Rosalie, a Plantation Home, now owned by the DAR. It was so fun. Wesley and I really love american history and it's fun to hear all about the ancestry and what became of the people who lived in these homes. They don't allow photos on the inside, so all I can say is go tour for yourself! Or just watch Gone With the Wind.. that basically sums it up. Just kidding...
Look up Fort Rosalie and it's actually quite sad that this is the site where the final Natchez Native Americans were killed. Before the house was there of course, but later after the house was built and Natchez fell to the Union, this house became the headquarters for the Union Army in Natchez. There is so much history in this little river city that you could tour and talk for days!
I can't wait to get my act together and blog a little more about this weekend, but that will have to wait until next week! I can't wait to show you guys Afton Gardens. So beautiful!
