November 2 - 4, 2017
"From These Honored Walls"
As Mississippi celebrates its bicentennial, and the Natchez Antiques Forum marks its 40th anniversary, explore the Natchez area's rich history and culture through architecture, painting, and the decorative arts.
Hear from the leading experts about Thomas Cole's "Voyage of Life" paintings and the excellent copies which hang in the grand mansion Stanton Hall in Natchez; learn about preserving historic wallpaper; and gain insights into period architecture and gardens.
Enjoy a tour of the historic churches of Natchez, spanning architectural styles from the Federal and Greek Revival to the Classical Revival, and be inspired by the sounds of music from their organs and singers.
Be a guest at an exclusive luncheon aboard the luxurious American Queen steamboat docked at Natchez-under-the-Hill, and at an elegant supper prepared by one of Natchez' finest chefs in a privately owned historic antebellum mansion.
Join us for three days of scholarly lectures, tours, fine dining and elegant parties in lavish historic homes plus great sightseeing and shopping in beautiful Natchez on the Mississippi River.
The Natchez Antiques Forum is sponsored by the Pilgrimage Garden Club with the support of the Pilgrimage Historical Association. Registration proceeds support the preservation of National Historic Landmarks Longwood and Stanton Hall as well as additional preservation projects in the larger Natchez community.
Natchez is the bed-and-breakfast capital of the South and offers a wide variety of accommodations from antebellum and Victorian homes and charming cottages to downtown hotels and motels with magnificent river views.
