Prospect Hill Plantation  

Mar/27/2014 - Mar/27/2014
Location: Grand Village of the Natchez Indians

The Grand Village of the Natchez Indians will present an illustrated program by Jessica Crawford entitled “An Update on the Prospect Hill Plantation” on Thursday, March 27, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. in the museum auditorium. Admission is free and seating is limited. The Grand Village is located at 400 Jefferson Davis Boulevard, one-half mile east of U.S. Highway 61 South in Natchez.

Crawford is Southeast Regional Director for The Archaeological Conservancy, a New Mexico based non-profit that preserves archaeological sites for educational and research purposes. From her office in Marks, Mississippi, she is responsible for the management of the Conservancy’s properties in 7 Southeastern States, as well as the identification and acquisition of new sites. She received her Master’s Degree in Anthropology from The University of Mississippi.

Prospect Hill Plantation, located in Jefferson County, was established in the early 1800’s by Captain Isaac Ross, a Revolutionary War veteran. Crawford will discuss the house’s historical connection to the American Colonization Society and the colony called Mississippi in Africa. She will also give an update on the condition of the house, which was built in 1854 and listed on the Mississippi Heritage Trust’s 2011 Ten Most Endangered List, and plans for the future of the plantation.

This will be a fascinating program. Please make plans to attend.
