In downtown Natchez, this Greek Revival style home - the Stanton House - reflected the height of antebellum prosperity. It was built for an Irish immigrant and cotton merchant named Frederick Stanton at a cost of $83,000 (before furnishings). Just months after the home was completed in 1859 Stanton died. The house was occupied by Union troops during the Civil War.
