Discussion Dunleith Commentary

"In the flourishing years before the Confederacy, a group of hard-driving Natchez planters harvested vast fortunes from their cotton fields and built glorious monuments to their prosperity and manner of life. Dunleith is a recognized signature of those times...the Golden Age of the South.

Situated on 40 acres of green pastures and wooded bayous, Dunleith has been honored by the Southern Heritage Society for its architectural grace and beauty."

—Doris Lockerman Kennedy, ed. Historic Houses of the South. p166.


Listed in the U.S. National Historic Register.
