On Saturday, April 16, 2011 we stay in Natchez, MS. I think Natchez, MS was the most beautiful city on our trip. It is a peaceful, walkable city set on the bluffs above the Mississippi river. It is blessed with quiet streets and elegant, historic homes. Located near what was then the northernmost navigable point on the river, Natchez was the site of the French Ft. Rosalie built in 1716. Numerous beautiful homes are located nearby in the Garden District on the bluffs above the river. The Longwood Octagonal House (c1860-1861) is the largest and most celebrated Octagonal house in the United States. The construction of Longwood was interrupted by the Civil War, and while the ground level was later completed and occupied, the upper stories still retain their original scaffolding.
