A visit to Natchez has to include a visit to one of the grand mansions. Today Southern Gardening is touring the grounds of Monmouth Historic Inn. Entering the grounds you first encounter the shady courtyard surrounded by mature Natchez crape myrtle, and the soothing sound of falling water from the fountain. Turning right, the herb garden is a treat and is partially hidden by the boxwood hedge. Entering you’re greeted by one of the Monmouth signature angel statues, nestled in a bed of sweet oregano and chives. English thyme displays its delicate flower spikes while spilling over the old brick edging. And you can’t miss the Mississippi Medallion winner rosemary waiting to be harvested for this evening’s dinner. The main garden path takes us down to an interesting fountain and water feature with lily pads. Continuing around the flowering ligustrum hedge, we find another angelic statue striking a pose amongst red knock out roses. All of the paths meandering around the grounds utilize old mossy bricks as either the walking surface or as edging. I think this adds to the historic feel of Monmouth. Perhaps what I like the most is the ancient pergola that is completely covered in wisteria. This is a popular site for weddings, especially in full bloom. And for the enjoyment of the guests there is an official croquet pitch and the rule book is available if needed. Touring these historic landscapes is certainly a treat. I’m horticulturist Gary Bachman and I’ll see you next time on Southern Gardening.

After making their way from a war torn battlefield, the adventurers discovered an old plantation home. It felt like a safe haven from the worries of the outside world. It was calm. It was quiet. One can almost see the peoples of the past wandering the gardens and pruning the bushes. It was peaceful. But the men needed more excitement, more adventure, so they pressed onward to see what lay in their path next.

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...

Here’s a quick tour of the B&B we stayed at in Natchez, MS. It was GORGEOUS!
Elgin Plantation Bed and Breakfast - Natchez, Mississippi
A ten minute drive from downtown Natchez will take you over a hundred years into the past. Built from 1792 to 1855, this was the home of a pioneer horticulturist of antebellum Natchez.
In 1853, his diary describes the building of the new house being built at the rear of Elgin Plantation. This two-storied brick building is now the bed and breakfast guest house with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen.
Guests are treated to a tour of the home and are invited to enjoy the 25 acres of informal gardens that are filled with huge, moss-filled oaks. Elgin Plantation is one of the tour homes on the Natchez Spring Pilgrimage of Antebellum Homes held during March and early April. B&B guests are treated to a tour of the 1792 home after breakfast.
