This mansion stands on part of the land where the French built Fort Rosalie in 1716 on the bluffs of Natchez Indian settlement. After the Natchez War of 1716, Bienville (also founded New Orleans) as part of the peace treaty, required the Natchez Indians to build the fort. This fort was close to the main Natchez settlement; and served as the primary French stronghold and trading post until it was eventually destroyed by the Natchez Indians.
Laura Plantation - My Most Favorite Plantation!! So beautiful! A creole plantation run by a woman because Louisiana was then and still is under the Napoleonic Code, in a will the property did not have to go to the first born son but could go to the child who would be the best steward of the land as they say in Louisiana "thank you Josephine"

D'Evereux Plantation, Natchez, Miss., buikt in 1840, a fine example of the Greek Revival style. One of the first residential structures constructed in Natchez with a full-length monumental, two-storey portico; the white columned look that would be stereotyped as southern architecture in later years. D’Evereux also marks the first appearance of a cupola in Natchez residential architecture.
