Natchez Antiques Forum
November 2 - 4, 2017
From These Honored Walls
As Mississippi celebrates its bicentennial, the Natchez Antiques Forum explores the Natchez area's rich history and culture through architecture, painting, and the decorative arts. Learn about Washington, the first territorial capital of Mississippi, of which it has been said, " The society was highly cultured and refined...in its forms there was more oratory, in its salons more wit and beauty than we have ever witnessed since."
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; about historic wallpaper; and about antebellum architecture and gardens.
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.
