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.

We went to Stanton Hall with our 90 year old parents. One of which was in a wheel chair. The Plantation is two stories, but an attendant stayed with our father and shared stories while we looked at the second floor. Someone brought a chair...More

This one is well worth a visit so make sure you hit it before you get mansion fatigue. The story is compelling and the modern day twist has been an entertaining finish to a long story. Beautiful trees and superb interior to enjoy. Restaurant onsite...More

We loved Stanton Hall. It was a lovely home. It had an intriguing story. The grounds were inviting, but the best part was our wonderful guide who made everything come to life. We must go back to Natchez and explore more of these lovely homes.

Located in Natchez this is the grandest of the antebellum homes. The tour was fascinating and interiors beautiful. No photos permitted in the house so can only show you the exterior, oh and cute little gift shop attached.

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.
