The Towers was built in 1798, 1826, and 1858. The house was the headquarters for the Union Army and behind the fortification lines of Fort McPherson when the city of Natchez was taken over in 1863. The family that owned The Towers at the time was John and Mary Fleming and their 7 children.
I have owned The Towers since 2006 and have fully restored it to its pre-Civil War glory. I have extensive collections of antique furniture, laces, glass, inkwells, 350 antique beaded purses, watch fobs, Chinese gaming counters from 1710 to 1840 and many other things.
The house has extensive gardens over its almost 5 acres with 2 dozen life size bronze sculptures of wildlife, including grizzly bears and elk. The house is on tour year-round by appointment, is on Pilgrimage Tour in the Spring and Fall, and has special Christmas tours featuring thousands of pieces of vintage costume jewelry on every tree and table. We are also a Bed and Breakfast.
The Towers is an Italianate style which included 2 towers (third story rooms) one on either side of the front of the house. One was burned in 1927 and the other removed. But the house is still very beautiful today. The web site is: thetowersofnatchez.com
