If you’re ever in Natchez Mississippi, you really have to visit the Longwood Mansion. Building started on the mansion right before the Civil War broke out. The exteriors were completed and the basement living quarters were done, all 10,000 sqare feet of them. The remaining 20,000 square feet never got finished. It was occupied by relatives til the 1980s or 1990s then the property was donated to a garden club. One of their caretakers stayed in the home til about 5 years ago. Apparently there are about a million bricks in the darn thing. Of course I had to do some photos. Here are some of my favorites that made it into the now infamous Pig in a Poke Collection.
