I hope you will enjoy my little trip back in time.
Natchez, MS and the Bontura HouseOne of my favorite homes to visit when I go to Natchez is the Bontura, c1851 built by Robert D. Smith, a free African-American who ran a carriage service. Later it became an inn run by Portuguese merchant Jose Bontura. Built in the Greek Revival style. It sits on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, It has unique iron work and I always try to go by during different Seasons to capture the ever changing landscape...Because of it's location on the Bluffs it was shelled by Union gunboats in the Civil War. It is now privately owned, I would love to go inside and see what it looks like.I did find a place on the net that showed more info about this beautiful house...You can read about it here
This sets right across the street from the Bontura House...What a beautiful sight to see every morning from your parlor windows.
