If graves aren’t something you find particularly comfortable being around, try going out and enjoying the fresh air at the Natchez National Historic Park. You’ll be visiting it by default if you shoot for Fort Rosalie. There are two other famous mansions located on park grounds, as well. This historical park is almost like a living snapshot of what life looked like back in the 18th and 19th century, at least for the wealthy class of elites.
