Magnolia Hall (ca. 1858)

 

The last great mansion built in downtown Natchez prior to the War Between the States, it is one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture.  The exterior walls are stucco over brick, scored and painted to resemble brownstone.  Featured inside is a costume museum.  Built for cotton broker and merchant Thomas Henderson, it was also the home of Audley Clark Britton and family until 1935.  Mr. Britton was one of the founders of the Britton and Koontz Bank in Natchez, which was chartered in 1835 and still exists today.  This wonderful home is a restoration project of the Natchez Garden Club.
