One of many houses to visit in Natchez. Though never finished, the parts that are finished are as equally fascinating as the unfinished parts. Best laid plans of men....

Can you just walk in and get a tour or do you have to schedule in advance? If so I plan on going January 20th, this Friday at 3. Will they be open?

I don't think you need an advance reservation. However, for the tours, I believe they run every 1/2 hour. If you will check in at the visitor center (on the ground floor), they will advise you. Don't miss the tour, for... More

Yes they are open on Sundays, with the last tour starting at 4.30. It's a long walk from central Natchez so most people arrive by car.
