Vacation Postcards: Arlington, Natchez

MissPres is on vacation this week, but we’re sending postcards back from Mississippi’s past.

Built in 1816. It is a pure Southern Colonial type of brick construction with Tuscan columns and majestic fanlights over the carved doorways. Gothic bookcases in the library shelve some 8000 volumes including a collection purchased by Judge Boyd in England about 1840. Among the valuable collections of glass in America.
