Things to Do Nearby
There are many historical attractions within a five-mile radius of the Brandon Hall Plantation.
The second largest United States Indian mound, Emerald Mount, is located just a few miles away at mile marker 10 of the Natchez Trail. It is noted by a historic marker and, although the majority of the mound is inaccessible, there is a viewing platform and a multi-acre park nearby.
Another local home, although not one open to overnight guests, is Mount Locust. Located at marker 15 of the Natchez Trail, the home is part of the National Parks Service and can be toured. It is one of the oldest structures in the state.
Just beyond the city limits of Natchez is the Christ Episcopal Church, located at Church Hill. It is a plantation-based community that allowed members of the congregation to stay together before the invention of faster travel. Guests can enjoy the property on their own or take a guided tour.
For a full day experience, hotel guests can bike, walk, jog, horseback ride, or drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway. 440 miles in its totality, Brandon Hall sits on only a small portion of the scenic road that runs from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. The road introduces guests to the history of the area, which stretches back to the 1700s.
