Forks of the Road
Liberty Rd @ St. Catherine St
Natchez MS, 39120
PH: 601-442-7049


Defined, at present, only by a historical marker, the area was once the second largest slave market in the South.

Between 1810 and 1860, some 200,000 slaves were bought and sold at this site. It was last used for slave trading in 1863, and Union Troops used the market buildings as a refugee camp for newly freed slaves and as housing while occupying Natchez. The buildings were torn down when the Union soldiers departed.
