About 10 miles From Port Gibson on Rodney Road. It's a long drive on a narrow road but once you reach it and see those majestic columns standing tall, that's when your imagination can start working as to what an amazing mansion that once was. 17,000 sq ft. took 2 years to build and the young 34 yr old owner...

While this place is not easy to find due to a lack of signs, it is worth the effort. It is something to gaze up at the remaining pillars of this house and use your imagination as to what it must have looked like once upon a time.

Upon the recommendation of a friend who visited Natchez last year, my friends and I headed up the Natchez Trace Parkway to find the Windsor Ruins. And as it ever worth our trip and a great place for photographs! The huge columns were evidence of a majestic home years ago. There is almost a reverence around the homesite and the... More

Windsor has been on my bucket list for years but I never had gotten there until now. Several miles west of Port Gibson down a winding lonely beautiful road it appeared. Tranquil, beautiful, and isolated, it was a beautiful experience and one I will return to again. It is near nothing and was about wandering through the columns in silence... More

It's beautiful historic site and even though Plantation burned down in 1891. Those Columns are still standing and you will notice the beauty of Rose on the top of Columns.. If you look closely or zoom your camera, it's amazing majestic design.. It's well worth trip to go see the Windsor Ruins.. That day was beautiful warm sunny day.

In the middle of what feels like nowhere, a few miles from Alcorn State University campus, you'll find a diamond in the rough at Windsor Ruins. A simple placard will give you the history of these stately columns which will take you back in time. It's an interesting stop to add to your visit to this area.

The pictures I saw online did not do this out-of-the-way gem justice. It was a remarkable relic of a bygone age when cotton was king and the antebellum rich could afford the extravagance of a Greco-Roman brick mansion. Well worth a side trip when driving the Natchez Trace Parkway from Natchez to Jackson.

It's an amazing place to appreciate architecture in the olden days. The columns are still standing up to this day. The intricate details that are left is very shocking. The place is a little far, but definitely worth a look.

Such a peaceful place to visit. No one else there when we parked up and wandered around the majestic columns, set in woodland, imagining what a beautiful piece of architecture it must have once been. Free to visit, definitely worth a detour to see.

Beautiful historic site, makes one want to watch all movies filmed here, too bad it burned in 1891, hope archival research reveals more historic photos and our drawings - good side trip from the Trace
