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. The evenings will be dedicated to sumptuous meals at The Carriage House Restaurant at Stanton Hall and gospel concerts by Amos Polk's Voices of Hope.
