Natchez has a system of 5 trails, three of which wind through the downtown area. There is also a nature trail and a bluff trail along the Mississippi River. John and I felt that we did not have time to take any one particular trail, but instead we wandered around several of the historical streets using as our guide street-side interpretive panels. This "museum of streets" gave us a good feel for the culture and character of the people of Natchez over the years. The architectural treasures in this town are amazing, Glen Auburn is one example. According to the interpretive sign it is "Mississippi's grandest example of French Second Empire style know for its distinctive Mansard roof". Built in the 1870s, it was owned by one of the town's merchants.
