Photo & Quoted Text from 1982 Historic National Places Application:
"The house is believed to have been designed by
Henry Austin (famous architect from New Haven, Connecticut).
The use of brick (14” thick walls) as a construction material, made from on site kilns adds to the distinction of the residence as brick was not commonly employed in the construction of Mississippi plantation cottage residences and was limited to public buildings at the time."
"The house is well executed and finely finished with unique molded millwork, marble mantelpieces, plaster ceiling centerpieces, molded plaster cornices and wide wrap around porch’s. The integrity of the setting and architectural integrity of the house is outstanding."
TOTAL ESTATE: 17 BEDROOMS, 13 FULL BATHS, 3 HALF BATHS
ABOUT 14,500 LIVING SQFT

Windsor Ruins: 3 miles from Canemount Known as one of the largest plantation homes in Mississippi. Occupied by Grants troops in 1863, burned in 1890. Left are 23 of the original 29 columns that are 45 feet tall.
Bethel Presbyterian Church: 1 mile from Canemount Circa 1824, has part of the original Rodney Road that Grants troops (17,000 to 29,000) marched on to the north side of church.
Alcorn State University: 2 miles from Canemount Oakland Chapel (circa 1840) has iron stairs, rails and balusters from Windsor Plantation, which were donated by the Smith Daniel family in 1912. There are many other antebellum buildings on this beautiful campus dating from when it started as Oakland College in 1840.
Mount Locust: 22 Miles from Canemount An original (late 1700's) Inn along the Natchez Trace.
Ghost Town of Rodney, MS 9 miles from Canemount Once a booming port town on the Mississippi River. The river has changed course over the years and often floods the town. What remains today are a few homes and two amazing churches. One is hit by flooding almost every year the other is on a hill with the town cemetery on the hill behind it. Rodney History and Preservation Society purchased the Presbyterian Church and are actively working on its restoration/preservation.

NATCHEZ IN BLOOM
FIGS & BLOOMING TREES!
It was a Fig Cake Kind of Welcome
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS!
PORCH SIPPING AT DUNLEITH
I rounded up a group of friends to visit Natchez: to experience some of the beauty and deliciousness the town offers during peak Crepe Myrtle bloom season. We were greeted warmly by Natchez friends!
Dunleith Historic Inn
along with its Castle Restaurant & Pub are back open and the dining was stellar.
Ricky Woolfolk created a special
Crepe Myrtle Themed Cocktail
and it's delicious!
Saturday's Explorations Included:
A Historic City Cemetery
Guided Walking Tour
(on grounds established in 1822),
Seeing Master Gardener Friends at the Natchez Farmers Market.
The produce, baked goods and plants are fantastic!
We also love its new location along the river.
We toured Choctaw Hall, built around 1836. It's a phenomenal property, and it's a highly recommended bed & breakfast.
Then, we enjoyed a delightful boozy brunch at the new Little Easy Cafe (we loved it so much we went back Sunday morning!)
While I showed a client a few homes downtown, our group enjoyed taking the Bloom Drive* & and engaging in a Sip & See Tour* of the Downtown area.
* Three self-guided Natchez Bloom tours are available - read on past story for details.

We reconvened at Beau DesHotel's new Arts District Studio for the Flora & Fauna Show & visited with the talented artists!
Afterwards we enjoyed viewing the grounds at Monmouth Historic Inn and their celebrated bar for pre-dinner drinks. I want to return to see this wisteria-covered arbor in bloom. What lovely gardens!
Monmouth Historic Inn also has a fine dining restaurant.
We enjoyed dinner at the Kitchen Bistro Saturday evening.
On Sunday, we were treated to a walking tour of the oldest part of the downtown - originally settled by the Spanish. A passing horse drawn carriage sets the mood.
Though a torrential rain came down during part of the walk led by my friend and historian Jefferson Mansell, we loved the experience. The architecture, blooms and camaraderie were beyond compare.
After the walk, Jeff invited us back to his house for coffee and treats. It was a wonderful time learning more about the history of Natchez. The experience was further heightened by our our Crepe Myrtle Archivist & Historian, and retired Master Gardener, Elaine Gemmell's homemade Fig Cake!
While your Natchez stay might not include Elaine's divine fig creation, you can always take solace, and magnificently so, in the Milk Punch served at the Little Easy Cafe! And about Milk Punch, we like ours with a shot of espresso!
Before leaving Natchez, we took another turn about the historic downtown area overlooking the majestic River and paid respects to the Champion Crepe Myrtle at Bontura.
WE ❤️ NATCHEZ! There's so much more to discover...
I wish we had stayed longer. We'll return soon with friends!
●●●●● THE BACKGROUND: Why I Founded the Natchez International Crepe Myrtle Festival
I'm a longtime fan of the architecture and genuine hospitality Natchez offers. But in July of 2018, I was completely caught off-guard. I was stunned by the intense array of blooms! So, I asked around to understand how this happened, and a planned effort came clear. In addition to the ongoing commitment of its citizenry, Sallie Ballard, the architect of 2000 for 2000, funded planting of well over 2000 crepe myrtles for the millennium! (SEE MORE ON MY BLOG)
I hope you're enjoying your summer.
