It rained last night, but stopped by this morning. So we took advantage of the break in the rain and went to explore the town. This is our third time visiting Natchez, so we are getting rather familiar with things. It is a lovely town, with loads of history, things to see and do. Our first stop was to the Visitor Center where we watched a 20 minute video about the area’s history. Natchez will be celebrating its TRI-Centennial in 2016. They have much planned, I hope we come back here again next year.
Then we went for a walk… and then for a drive. Here are some pictures from our day, if you want a closer look, click the picture and it will take you to an enlargement:
Forks of the Road is the site of the South’s second largest slave market in the 19th century. Interpretive signs and a kiosk tell its history:
And then the food! Natchez is self-proclaimed Biscuit Capitol of the World and has an annual biscuit cook-off. We thought it only proper that we have lunch at a place named Biscuits & Blues. Great food! Then we see a couple other barbecue restaurants that look like we need to eat there…maybe next time.
