Each year Natchez opens its arms to welcome hundreds of visitors to the Natchez Spring Pilgrimage. This year's event was scheduled for March 7-April 11, 2009. The tour included twenty-four antebellum homes packaged at 3 homes per $21 ticket.

Since originating the tour in the l930's, this event has been organized to ultimate effect. Each morning tour runs from 9:00 am-12:30 p.m. and features three historic homes. The afternoon tour begins at 1:30 pm and concludes at 5:00 p.m. offering the same number of homes to visit. Throughout the event homes are rotated.

My husband and I purchased two tickets each (which ushered us to the interior of six homes), allowing for an entire day's worth of touring. Our choices took us to:

Stanton Hall*
Routhland
Hawthorne*
Roselie
Richmond*
Green Leaves*

Costumed Southern belles escorted us through the buildings, detailing the history of the home and families who once lived there. It truly whisked us back in time to glimpse the Old South as it was before the Civil War!
