Tours are offered on a three-day alternating schedule, with three different homes open in the morning and afternoon. Tours of Natchez' most popular antebellum museum homes, Longwood (1860-1861), Rosalie (1820) and Stanton Hall (1857) will also be available daily during the full, eighteen-day event. Evening activities include special meals at The Carriage House Restaurant at Stanton Hall and gospel concerts by Amos Polk's Voices of Hope. The Natchez Little Theatre, one of the oldest community theatres in the South, will also offer a staged production of the Truman Capote novel The Grass Harp this year.
