SPRING PILGRIMAGE 2015: MARCH 7 - APRIL 7
The smell of azaleas, the sight of hoopskirted hostesses, and the sound of stories of days past will soon fill the air in Natchez, Mississippi, the oldest continuous settlement on the Mississippi River.
The doors of 27 Natchez antebellum homes will be open from March 7 until April 7, and visitors from around the world be welcomed into privately owned homes open only during the city's annual Spring Pilgrimage.
To view the houses on tour for spring, visit the Spring Pilgrimage page. To purchase tickets, visit our online store.
