Please do not bring Firearms / Weapons into Pleasant Hill. Smoking is not permitted in or near our home. Cigars and pipes are not allowed under any circumstances.
Pleasant Hill was originally built by John Henderson, a prosperous merchant, publisher of the local newspaper, and a founder of Natchez' First Presbyterian Church. The original home was built on property that is now the location of another famous antebellum home, Magnolia Hall. That was 1835. Over a two-year period during the 1850's Pleasant Hill was moved one block south on log rollers by oxen teams, a feat that would seem futile by today's standards.
Our home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places not only because of its longevity, but also because of two items of architectural significance. One being the beautiful entrance hall staircase, which spirals freely to the second floor, and the other, the unique "pocket doors" between the dining room and front parlor.
My husband and I purchased Pleasant Hill in 1999, and after a year's restoration and renovation we moved into our "new" old home.
The ground floor, or garden floor houses four bedrooms, each with private bath, that open into a center hall/sitting area. There is also a glass enclosed, brick-floored sunroom with wet bar, TV and antique wicker furniture. It's a lovely, quiet place to relax, and the house itself is just a short walk away from antiques, shops and restaurants in the center of downtown Natchez. -Val
