Natchez Under the Hill and treasures, real treasures....

Last Weds my Sis and I took my little Rissa to Natchez and junkin' we had such a great time. We went to several Thrift stores and found  several  items both for me and for her. What we found is for another post. We toured the city and also went to Natchez Under the learn more about it click here.....Natchez Under the Hill.
I took alot of pictures because little girl was so excited, she is extremely unusual for an 8 yr old. She loves just riding and looking at beautiful old homes and never gets bored.
This is she and my Sis, her Great-Aunt Dean

Of course the tom boy in her found a great old tree to climb...
Next are just some old houses that she had to have pictures of....

The one above is being remodeled and she just loved the wood work on the front....
Then it was on to the Natchez under the Hill area and the MS River...
She loves looking at the River, she just acted like she'd never seen it before and she has, she said that the river is ever changing and moving....
Signs in a Park above the River
A beautiful old home across the road from the park it is so lovely with the court yard between the main house and the kitchen...

You can just catch a glimpse of the River Gambling boat at the Dock, if you let yourself drift back in time,  you can almost see an original old Riverboat that has just docked on it's way to Memphis from New Orleans, you can just see part of Natchez under the Hill; my the stories those trees and old buildings could tell.
A look at what is left of Natchez Under the Hill
The old Train Depot, it is now remodeled into up scale Condos. But they still allow the Carriage Tours to pick up customers in the same old stop that they have been in since the 60s.
And last but not least a view of the Mississippi River Bridge as we entered into LA for lunch.
We had a great Lunch of BLT's and ice tea, at a small place called Mickie's just across the river in LA.
I plan to show some of our treasure in the near future, so be sure and check back later.
My little Rissa is in Johnson City, TN with her Nanna and Grumpy now and I sure do miss her.
My real treasures that We received this day, where the treasure of memories that My little girl will remember for years to come and the joy I received for sharing them with her..


  1. I'd say your little Missy has GREAT taste in old houses.

  2. Your little Rissa has a great eye and an adept sense of appreciation! Oh the memories you created for her and for yourself...memories that will last a lifetime!

    I so love Natchez and enjoy visiting there. Terry and I took a trip on the Trace a few years back. We just took our time and drove the Trace, stopping for all the little towns and stops along the way, ending up in Natchez. We LOVED the old home tours! Natchez Under the Hill was so fascinating.

    Thank you for this walk down memory lane for me. It is a walk both you and Rissa will take many times in the future! Have a great week!

    Many hugs..............


  3. Your pictures are great, love the beautiful homes. Sounds as if you all had a wonderful time. Blessings to you my dear friend !

  4. what a lovely day you had with your little one.

  5. Hi Molly, everything of course is looking so familiar! Looks like you had a great time. I wish I had a chance to meet with you. Next time, please let me know when you are coming here, I would love to meet you!...Christine

  6. There's nothing like keeping company with a GrandDaughter to keep you smiling.

    I've been trying to comment on several posts lately, and this little "box" wouldn't appear. I was coming in from my "Favorites" list on my blog, and then when I just put this one in "bookmarks" it worked fine.

    I thought I was gonna have to ask a mutual friend to at least let you know I was trying!!!
