A little out of the way but it’s a pretty country drive. It is a windy road! The ruins are fenced in for safety (ours and it’s, I’m sure!) but I stood on the trash can to get a picture without the fence! 🤫 Beautiful....More

Built in1861, burned in 1890 except for columns and ironwork. Fence around area, neatly mowed. Massive columns. Must have been amazing before it burned. You’ll need bug spray if you walk around.

I saw this in a book called American Ruins and discovered it was on my way on a trip. It’s pretty easy to find, a couple miles down the road from Alcorn State and it’s well marked. The ruins themselves are impressive; the columns are...More

I was driving the Natchez Trace and used my navigation's directions from the southbound Trace to Port Gibson and into the forest from there. Don't get scared-off by the initial rough road; it smooths out quickly and widens and is in great shape. Further, do...More

Deteriorating very quickly although monies are trying to be raised for repairs. See it now! It is a scenic drive through the countryside, but completely worth it.

Windsor is not on the way anywhere. There are two approaches; State Highway 522 from Lorman and Rodney Road from Port Gibson. Since we were returning from Natchez to Starkville 522 appeared to the best choice. WRONG, about 1-2 miles south of Windsor ruins MDOT...More
