Melrose

One of 13 National Historic Landmarks in Natchez, Melrose is one of the best preserved and most significant historic sites in the entire South. The Greek Revival estate was constructed circa 1845 for Pennsylvania native and Natchez attorney John T. McMurran. The home is operated by the Natchez National Park Service, United States Department of the Interior, and the grounds of Melrose are open to tour daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at no charge.

Beginning July 8, 2020, Natchez National Historical Park will reopen access to:

• The grounds at the 80-acre Melrose estate, #1 Melrose Montebello Parkway. The grounds of this National Historic Landmark will be open to the public seven days a week from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The park has designed a self-guided tour of the estate grounds that is an easy .7-mile walk and follows gravel roads or paved paths for almost the entire route. Narration at the various stops acknowledges the diversity of people who lived and worked at the estate. Visitors will be able to use their cell phones to access written, audio, and photographic information at specific points identified by sandwich boards with QR codes along this route. There is never an entrance fee for the grounds at Melrose.
