Stanton Hall

400 High Street
Natchez, MS 39120
P: (601) 442-6282
When you first get a glimpse of Stanton Hall, it will boggle your mind to know that builder, Dr. Frederick Stanton, paid a mere $83,000 to build this opulent, Greek Revival style mansion, which occupies an entire city block. Dr. Stanton was an Irish immigrant and he'd originally named the house Belfast, for obvious reasons. In addition to being a family physician, Stanton was a wealthy planter and cotton merchant. The house was built in 1857 and is noted for its scale, outstanding marble mantles, and large pier mirrors that give the double parlors infinite appeal. For a brief time, the house was home to Stanton College for young ladies and the name was then changed to Stanton Hall. Today the house is owned and maintained by the Pilgrimage Garden Club. You can learn more about Stanton Hall when you take the tour, or as you pass by in a horse-drawn carriage tour. Please visit the website link above to learn more about the home and how to purchase tour tickets.
