Natchez Fall Pilgrimage
Thursday, September 26, 2013 - Monday, October 14, 2013
This year, Natchez’ annual Fall Pilgrimage events include tours of fifteen antebellum homes provided by costumed tour guides portraying ancestors from each home. 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. The Natchez Little Theatre, one of the oldest community theatres in the South, will also offer a Natchez-style adaptation of the classic, Little Women, during Pilgrimage. Ticket counter, open daily, is located inside the Natchez Visitor Reception Center at 640 South Canal Street. (800) 647-6742 or visit natchezpilgrimage.com.
