“Welcoming Mansion of Early Natchez”

Auburn Museum & Historic Home
Ranked #14 of 53 things to do in Natchez
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Beautiful yet embracing early mansion with many stories to tell. Original furnishings and possessions are finding their way back to the home from descendents of some of the original owners and the caring community. The docents were extremely knowledgeable and really brought the place to life! An amazing and living old beauty being lovingly restored and presented by volunteers. One of only three remaining free standing spiral staircases in the US marvels visitors. A must see in Natchez!

Please support the valiant effort of local Natchez ladies in their attempt to maintain this earliest of the ante-bellum homes. Built in 1812 by a man who came down from Pennsylvania and married a southern woman, Auburn was the first great house in the area. His wife died and he remarried. His own demise and chicanery with the will ensued. Besides the old home and furniture is an intriguing mystery.

The Auburn house is actually located next to Duncan park, we missed the driveway the first time and doubled back and found it. The husband and wife tour guides were gems - so many stories and history in this house. This is one of the older homes in the area. For many years the house was just open as part of the park until this organization stepped in to restore the home. It has a very unique unsupported spiral staircase in the main entrance of the home. Everything was decorated for the holidays as well. This home may not be as fancy as some of the others it was really one of my favorites. I hope they are able to continue to restore the home.

I have been to the Auburn many times, but I learn something new every time. I encourage all to visit the Auburn to learn about the early history of Natchez and to help support the group that is taking care of this wonderful house. We must keep these old houses in good shape so future generations can enjoy what we are seeing today.
