Beautiful Stanton Hall Puzzle

The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!

Beautiful Stanton Hall

Designed and built by Thomas Rose for cotton broker Frederick Stanton, the Greek Revival style house was completed in 1857. Like most of the great Antebellum houses of Natchez, MS, it was a suburban estate, not a plantation. The agricultural activities that supported these houses took place across the Mississippi River in Louisiana, where the rich soil was ideal for growing cotton.

Long recognized as symbols of Southern culture, the historic houses of the Antebellum South are also monuments to the fine craftsmanship and labor of the often-enslaved carpenters who built them and the enslaved people whose labor paid for these beautiful buildings. In recent years, substantial research has documented the skilled labor of enslaved craftsmen working in building construction in the American South.

In 1938, Stanton Hall was purchased by the Pilgrimage Garden Club and restored as their headquarters. It is open for tours year-round. Visiting historic house museums is a wonderful way to get inspiration for your home restoration projects.
Restoration methods and materials used by museums are included among the approaches presented in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
