Natchez Fall Pilgrimage

September 24

“The most extensive tours of the most extravagant antebellum homes in America.” That’s the way the Pilgrimage Garden Club describes the Natchez Pilgrimage—the spring and fall tour of homes that has kept visitors coming back to Natchez since 1932. That’s because Natchez was once home to more millionaires per capita than any other city in America—and while Natchez and its residents acknowledge that wealth was built on the backs of enslaved individuals, the city has managed to preserve the extraordinary architectural legacy of that wealth while somberly reflecting on the human lives sold and lost in the process of building it. Today, Natchez’s streets remain lined with the palatial mansions and filigreed townhouses, and each year the families that occupy them allow guests to nose through two-hundred-year-old homes, meet descendants, hear tales, sip a mint julep, stay in one of more than fifty historic B&Bs, and generally get a residents’ eye view of life in this most historic of Southern cities.
