The History
"The Towers"

The Historic Towers was built over three different time periods, with the first construction during the colonial western expansion of the United States around 1790. This original structure, which still stands on the property was crafted in the West Indies Style of architecture. Many components of this 18th Century two story structure show signs of peg construction and barge-board elements from the river boats coming to the port of Natchez with the fur trading.


A second phase of construction came in 1826 with the Neo-Classical floor plan and a row of square columns wrapping completely around the house. Some of those original columns are still standing on the side and rear porches!


Finally the third period of building works was completed in 1858 with an enormous Italian Villa - Renaissance Revival Facade. This "newest" construction originally had a pair of third story rooms on each front corner of the house, which looked like towers.....and that is how we got the name "The Towers".


Unfortunately, in the 1920's a fire on the second floor {north tower} caused major damage to the upper "tower rooms" and  the decision by previous owners was made to have them removed.


Today, This Grand Mansion has recently gone through a new phase of renovation with great  attention given to detail and beauty..... including restoring and rebuilding the original "tower rooms" to this Majestic Private Residence.
