Just a short ride from the trace, and well worth the diversion. This area is unusual in its topography and this mansion would have been opulent in its day. gravel parking lot and nobody much around.

You see these magnificent columns and wonder what it looked like in the day. There is a sketch that gives you an idea. Worth the out of the way trip off Natchez Trace.

Beautiful day walking through a plantation mansion whose ruins of columns remain after a fire. Odd but cool to walk through what could have been. Nice stop on the way between Natchez and Vicksburg.

It was a country road. One that takes you back in time and off the beaten path. Back in time to the 1800's. Before the Civil War. The grand feeling you get of being dwarfed by the gigantic pillars of this home is amazing!! Well worth the drive.

Well worth the side trip! We were in our truck scoping out the Trace for our cycling trip. Don't think I would cycle out there for extra miles but glad we saw it from our truck drive.

I'll never forget the first time my wife and I got a loot at Windsor, the ruins of the largest antebellum Greek Revival mansion ever built in Mississippi. We were driving on Highway 552 southwest of Port Gibson. We were told Windsor was about 12 miles out of town. Checking the odometer, we began looking for the site as we... More

Just a very short drive off Rodney Road, the Windsor Ruins stand proud and sure. Less is more, for sure and the longer you absorb the beauty of the ruins, the more you see how it looked like before the fire. Absolutely worth the small detour.

off the beaten path. quite, peaceful. make sure to bring your camera. the story behind this once grand plantation home is interesting whether or not you enjoy history. my husband is not a big history buff like me but he still enjoyed the uniqueness of it.

There is no admission fee. It's a little out of the way. It is worth the time to see. Its amazing that it still standing after all these years.
