House on Ellicott Hill (ca. 1798)


Andrew Ellicott, under the direction of President George Washington, and in defiance of Spanish authorities, raised the American flag on this hill in 1797.  Architecturally, the style reflects influences of the West Indian Caribbean, where Natchez had common trade interests with the French, English and Spanish.  Overlooking the terminus of the Natchez Trace, it is a mid-1930's historic restoration project of the Natchez Garden Club.
