The antebellum homes of Natchez, Mississippi
Natchez once boasted over 500 millionaires, more than any other city in the United States, except New York. In this short video, Charlie Adams shows you antebellum homes of those millionaires, including Longwood, circa 1858-61. It is the largest remaining octagonal house in the United States. It is a superb example of the mid-19th century Oriental style and was originally designed by it's owner, Dr. Haller Rush Nutt, with solar panels (strategically place mirrors) to reflect the sun's rays for the purpose of heating water. However, when the Civil War began, the workmen who were from the north, abandoned saws and hammers and returned home. Dr. Nutt, also a northerner, lost his wealth and plantations across the river in Louisiana and died a broken man. Longwood remains unfinished today, but that is part of its charm. Charlie takes you through the rooms and corridors of this most unusual house where you will find the workmen's tools left where they were dropped, abandoned in their haste to quit the South.
Since 2006 Charlie has taken hundreds of people on group travel trips for Edgerton's Travel, where he shares inspirational stories from his keynotes and seminars along the way. A former award winning television anchor, he also produces a 60 minute DVD documentary for travelers. Here on youtube, he shares short clips from the documentaries, which can educate you on places you may want to visit one day.

A quick summary of this episode! :38 Leaving St. Louis for Lamberts Cafe in Sikeston, MO 1:54 Stayed the night at the Hilton Memphis (Sorry, Elvis) 2:49 We arrived in the beautiful and historic Natchez, MS. View the photos I took around the city in my Natchez album on Flickr. 3:14 King’s Tavern — Featured on Ghost Adventures in Season 7, episode 18 from 2013. Kings Tavern is the oldest standing building in the Mississippi Territory and Natchez and its history goes all the way back to 1769. 3:36 Plan B and stumbling into a beautiful surprise! 4:17 Dinner at the historic Bowie’s Tavern — We talked to some residents who recommended we have dinner at Bowie’s Tavern, which is on Broadway in Natchez. And they made a great choice for us. Good food and really nice people. The historic building overlooks the Mississippi river and was originally a cotton warehouse. They also proudly display a mahogany bar that was built around 1880. They also have lodging on the upper floor with a view of the river! 5:04 Spending the morning in the beautiful Natchez City Cemetery for some photography. Check out that photo album on Flickr. 6:03 The mysterious and unique grave of Florence Irene Ford (Sept 3, 1861 - Oct 30, 1871), who died of yellow fever at the age of 10. This grave was constructed with a set of open concrete stairs that descend next to what would be the head of Florence’s body, with the headstone above. Learn more about this grave at GhostInMySuitcase.com. 8:05 Before leaving Natchez, we toured the Monmouth Mansion (built in 1818) and the beautiful gardens and small cemetery that surrounds it. Check out my Monmouth Mansion photo album on Flickr. 10:03 The Myrtles Plantation (built circa. 1796) in St. Francisville, LA — If you are as big of a paranerd as I am, you’ve probably seen the Ghost Hunters investigation of Myrtles from way back in 2005, episode 1 of their 2nd season. You’ve also probably seen the The Ghost Adventures crew investigate the place just last year in season 9, episode 2. 10:46 The lovely Miss Hester 11:33 Some audio with a little bit of the atmosphere of the haunted Myrtles Plantation. 12:25 The Myrtles Plantation Tour 14:15 Some of the legends of the Myrtles Plantation 16:18 The Haunted Mirror 17:01 The ghost of Chloe — Probably the biggest legend of the Myrtles. Chloe was supposedly the slave closest to the Woodruff family, who purchased the home in 1820 and remodeled it. Was she Mr. Woodruff’s mistress? Did she poison Mrs. Woodruff, along with Cornelia and James, two of the children? Was one of her ears cut off? And was she hung from a nearby tree? 19:03 The nursery, or the “Ruffin Stirling Room”, which is where we stayed for the night. The two children, Cornelia and James Woodruff, were apparently taken to this room, where they later died. 21:26 Kate, Cleo, Voodoo, and other deaths at the Myrtles. 21:47 More about the “terrifying” bed shaking experiences that have been reported in the nursery/Ruffin Stirling Room. 22:34 Before bed we tried to reach out to any of the spirits of the Myrtles by conducting an EVP, Spirit Box, and Ouija session in the nursery. 23:06 Who changed the track on my recorder while we were sleeping? 26:23 More audio of me touring the grounds of the Myrtles, including the pond and cabins around the back of the property. 28:26 View my Myrtles Plantation photo album on Flickr. Our visit to Grace Cemetery and the Grace Episcopal Church in St. Francisville, LA. You can find the Grace Cemetery photo album on Flickr. 30:18 The beautiful and reportedly haunted Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA. It’s one of the more popular plantations. In fact, you’ve probably seen it in photos or even as the Hollywood backdrop of a movie or two. It was featured in Season 4, episode 19 of Ghost Hunters in 2008. The rows of 300 year old oak trees are breath taking. Check out my Oak Alley Plantation album on Flickr. 32:36 Heading to New Orleans and the overwhelming heaviness or anxiety that I was feeling. 33:45 Our stay at the Hotel St. Marie in the French Quarter, and its connection to American Horror Story: Coven. 34:25 Bourbon Street 35:15 Our spectacular dinner and experience at the Oceana...

NATCHEZ MISSISSIPPI - Deep South road trip
In the summer of 2015, my parents and I made a fantastic road trip across the Southern States, following the blues highway. Our second stop was Natchez, Mississippi. We enjoyed our stay in this friendly and beautiful historic town, and were impressed by the antebellum houses, city cemetery and our own Bed & Breakfast: The Historic Oak Hill Inn.
We visited Stanton Hall, which offers a glimpse into the life of a wealthy Natchez family. Another antebellum house we visited, was the impressive Longwood. This octagonal house was never finished due to the civil war, which makes it even more interesting.
We had a great dinner at Magnolia Grill and a drink at the Saloon under the Hill, right across the Mississippi river.

A New York State Revolutionary War Trail Site
One of the finest pre-Revolutionary War homes on Long Island, Rock Hall was built in 1767 for Josiah Martin, a wealthy West Indian plantation owner. The Georgian-style home belonged to two of the area's most famous families, the Martins and Hewletts. In 1948, the Hewlett family deeded Rock Hall to the Town of Hempstead. After an extensive restoration, it opened as a museum in 1953. Today, Rock Hall is affiliated with the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities (SPLIA).
The museum offers a guided tour, programs of historic interest, special lectures and an educational program for students. Be sure to visit the museum's cellar. The Warming Kitchen, Cold Storage Room and Wine Cellar offer fascinating views of the rarely seen working areas in an 18th-century plantation-style home. Also located in the cellar is the museum's ongoing Archaeology Exhibit Room. There you will see a display of 18th- and 19th-century artifacts that continue to be uncovered during excavations at Rock Hall.
Visit the Museum Gift Shop for great gifts. Open during museum hours.
