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.

Very educational tour guide. What amazed us was that it had 90% of the original furniture!! It's also one of a few homes with the kitchen attached to the home.

Stanton Hall architecture is impressive. Very few original furnishings left in the house. The tour went very quickly.

This was probably my least favorite tour out of 4 Antebellum homes because our tour guide lacked personality. She was dressed rather frompy and was not very informative about the family/house history. She knew more about who made the furniture throughout the house than she...More

The mansion was built to impress it's guests back in 1857. A lot of the original items are still doing just that. What has/had to be replaced was done so tastefully and correctly. Our tour though short was very well done, thanks Edwin.

The tour was interesting. The mansion and grounds was spectacular. Going during the fall we had great weather to enjoy spending time relaxing outside.

Nice as these Antebellum houses are - but if you've seen one, haven't you seen all...??? And to pay 36,- bucks and not be allowed to take pictures.......Would not do it again. Still - nice to have seen it.

This was our second favorite mansion after Rosalie for its meticulous preservation and period furniture. We didn’t give it a 5 because admission is $18 a person rather than the typical $15 for other comparable tours, and the tour leader though very knowledgeable waited for...More

Really nice to see such a beautiful antebellum house, especially with a lot of the original furniture. Knowledgeable guide, who clearly loved the house. We found this much more interesting than the bigger horse breeder's plantation house we visited in Nashville.

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.
