Natchez National Historical Park / Melrose Plantation

Recommended
Now owned by the National Park Service, Melrose is an authentic antebellum town estate (c.1845) complete with slave quarters and other "dependencies," including the kitchen, stables and privies. A guided tour of the house and grounds informs visitors about the lives of slave owners and the enslaved alike, including the slaves' individualized bell-summoning system and the tragedies linked to a then-innovative lead-lined cistern system.
