Owner description: 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.

Stanton Hall is a beautiful home in Natchez. We enjoyed the tour as well as the lunch we had in the restaurant.

This is Southern history at its best. A step back in time to civil war days snd just an epic house. The fried chicken at the carriage house in the back is delicious.

My friend and I enjoyed seeing the home and getting a glimpse into life in the past. The tour guide was kind, but not very animated or well researched.

This plantation owners home is in down town Natchez. The shop and reception ladies are very friendly. The waiting area is outside on the porch. Once inside you may not take pictures anywhere. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all materials in the house, manufacturers, dates, fabrics etc etc. We were lucky that we were the only two people on the tour and we could ask more questions about the people, which for us is more interesting than the materials. We very much enjoyed this half hour tour.

A lovely old antebellum home. A look back into the past. Good guides for the tour. And your tour price helps keep the old buildings in repair. Well worth a visit.
