"Visit below the Hill." Natchez Things to Do Tip by Toughluck

Natchez Things to Do: 86 reviews and 149 photos


There were always two Natchez towns. 'On the Hill' and 'Below the Hill'. At one time, Below the Hill streatched for 1/4 mile or more along the river and was several blocks wide. It was always a rough and tumble place where the boat hands hung out. Saloons, gambling, loose women. Today, there remain but a few buildings at the public landing the keep up the image from when this was a booming part of town.
