Natchez, Mississippi is truly filled with beautiful historic mansions, thanks to its affluent fame during the pre-Civil War days. Another good example of its great architectural gems is the Monmouth mansion.

Monmouth is a former plantation built in 1818. It is a 30-acre estate owned by a former Mississippi governor, John Quitman. It was built and initially owned by John Hankinson, who died of yellow fever, along with his wife. Quitman acquired the property shortly after, and lived on the house until he died in 1858.

The Monmouth was initially restored to its original state in 1978 when the Riches of Los Angeles, California acquired the site. The couple also managed to re-acquire other Quitman possessions and furniture, which are now displayed on the site.
