Mississippi Springtime: Glenfield

Hang on, Mississippians, there may be snow on the ground in the Delta, but Spring is almost here! And when it’s Spring in Mississippi, it’s time for Pilgrimage. Which town will you visit this year?

Glenfield

Glenfield, originally called Glencannon, was probably begun around 1851 and completed by 1867. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 as “the most architecturally significant expression of the Gothic Revival style in the Natchez area. The significance of the house rests not only on the quality of its architecture but also on its high degree of architectural integrity, which includes the survival of its original interior decorative scheme.”
