It's that time of year - Natchez Pilgrimage time. If you are a Mississippian, likely you have visited Natchez during its Spring or Fall Pilgrimage. If you live elsewhere, a visit to this old, historic southern city that was once the capital of the Mississippi Territory is well worth the trip. A preservation project of the Natchez Pilgrimage Tours, the pilgrimage showcases the elegant antebellum mansions of the city, with many of them open for tours. And if you are into genealogy and have "southern roots," what better place to begin tracing your ancestors.
