Natchez Under-the-Hill

Almost 200 years ago Natchez Under-the-Hill was known as the most notorious river landing on the Mississippi River. Gamblers, thugs, murderers, con-men, swindlers, prostitutes, and traders in every illegal substance known populated Natchez Under-the-Hill. It was a nasty place.

Now the restaurants and saloons bring in tourists.  Jerry Lee Lewis used to play his music here when he was very young.

We had lunch at the Magnolia Grill at Natchez Under-the-Hill, Bernie had the catfish which came with hush-puppies and some boiled greens, and I had a bowl of gumbo, which was delicious. Then we walked around the corner to have a look at the Isle of Capri, a stationary steamboat casino.

We have moved the RV a few miles up the road to the Natchez State Park for tonight. Tomorrow we will begin driving up the Natchez Trace Parkway.
