Built ca. 1784-1832-1860, Gvt. Fleet Rd.
Built in three stages, this house features handsome woodwork and original furnishings. Its architecture represents three periods of Natchez history: French Plantation, (the original home built by a French trader who married a Natchez Indian lady) built in 1784. When John Marshall bought the house in 1832, he added the Greek Revival addition to make the home a little more refined, In 1860 the Colonial section was added mainly for bedrooms, but before he could finish it the War broke out and since Mr Marshall own a home in New York, he went there till the war was over, leaving his mother in Natchez at Richmond....
This home has remained in the John Shelby Marshall family since 1832. You can read more about Richmond here
I wanted to make pictures of the inside, but no one was allowed to do that, but Mrs. Mall told me I could take all of the pictures I'd like outside.
I put all the pictures I took in a slide show for your enjoyment..

I'm linking this post to "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Claudia's blog Dipity Road. Today all the participating blogs can post whatever they like on their blog that touched them in some way and made them feel, see, or appreciate a moment of beauty in their lives.
I believe beauty is anything that makes you smile or warms your heart.
