Entering This Hidden Mississippi Castle Will Make You Feel Like You’re In A Fairy Tale
This Mississippi castle is exactly the type of thing fairy tales are made of.
Dunleith - Natchez, MS ~ This has always been my favorite!!!! Dunleith is the only house in Mississippi that is completely encircled by a colossal colonnade. Dunleith stands on the site originally occupied by "Routhland," a house built by Job Routh and his wife. Tragically, Routhland was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Dunleith was constructed on the site in 1856 by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dahlgren as their in-town villa.
On June 19, 1865, while standing on the balcony of Galveston’s Ashton Villa, (which still stands today) Union General Gordon Granger read the contents of “General Order No. 3” emancipating the last remaining slaves in the United States.
