Overview

N 1858, Frederick Stanton built the home of his dreams for his family on his new property - an entire city block of Natchez, Mississippi. The city block cost about $1,550. The house cost over $83,000 before it was even furnished. Carrera Marble, mahogany doors 2 1/2 inches thick, candeliers from France, and Italian statuary appointed the interior. Huge Corinthian columns and granite steps adorned the facade. Stanton came to America with his brothers in 1815. He made a fortune as a cotton broker, then as owner of more than 16,000 acres of cotton plantations. Ironically, he lived only one month after his dream home was finished. ...Now inside view of the Carriage House Restaurant Stanton Hall housed a college for young ladies for a short time, then fell into dissarray to some extent before the Pilgrimage Garden Club renewed the antebellum mansion to much of its former glory. It stands today, filled with original and like antique furnishings as Frederick originally created it, a showcase for the world to see. Daily tours are given of the home, and during Spring and Fall Pilgrimages hostesses dress in antebellum costume to greet the throngs of visitors. After the tour, many stop to have lunch at the adjacent Carriage House Restaurant, which is nationally famous for its fine Southern cuisine. Stanton Hall is listed as an official National Historic Landmark.

What a shame to have a beautiful property and a guide that absolutely had little to no enthusiasm about the history or the property. BORING and need not to have been. If Natchez does not certify its guides tourism is going to suffer. The 30...More

Set in the middle of Natchez, a very nice, well restored home. The opulence of this home only highlights the in-congruency of the system in the South prior to the civil war. This family were extremely rich and flaunted their wealth by furnishing their home...More

Staton Hall is a display of the height of fashion and architecture in the Antebellum South. With some of the most beautiful furniture you have seen, walking through Staton Hall will give you chills at seeing what unlimited budgets could buy.

This impressive home was perhaps the finest example built. The tour was well led, and gave a nice historic insight.

We paid $15.00 for an adult ticket but we bought a package to see 3 estates so we saved a little. Bought tickets at the visitor center.
