This is a great piece of history to explore right in the heart of Mississippi. You get to see what's left of a part of slavery.

I had been here years ago as a teenager and was amazed at the sheer size of the columns. They are beautifully ornate as well. The story is sad but very interesting. I’ve also heard that Mark Twain wrote part of his Life on the...More

Standing next to these huge columns is amazing... but it's a pretty quick 10-minute stop with nothing else on the grounds or nearby. Little explanation and no people there to share the history, so read up before you go.

The roads to this attraction have been repaved in the last year making it a smoother ride to get there. There is not a lot to do in the area but the ruins are worth the trip. Make sure you bring your camera and enjoy...More

If you love antebellum architecture, this is a must if you're passing through the area. Thankfully, this gem is still free to visit. There is a fence around the ruins prohibiting visitors from walking among the columns, which makes total sense for safety. This is...More

Worth the side trip to see this architectural wonder. I wished I had read up on it more prior to the trip. My husband was in awe of the craftsmanship and the work that went into constructing these columns. As a bonus, we rode through...More

A little out of the way but it’s a pretty country drive. It is a windy road! The ruins are fenced in for safety (ours and it’s, I’m sure!) but I stood on the trash can to get a picture without the fence! 🤫 Beautiful....More

Built in1861, burned in 1890 except for columns and ironwork. Fence around area, neatly mowed. Massive columns. Must have been amazing before it burned. You’ll need bug spray if you walk around.
