Ancient Indigenous mounds just on the edge of Natchez. It also functions as an outdoor museum.

The Grand Village of the Natchez, was home to the Natchez tribe and their "Sun King". The city is named after these people. It is located just south of Natchez, not far from the Mississippi River It was last the home of the Natchez until about the time of the start of the American Revolution. It has many reconstructions, paintings of what the old structures would have looked like. And, the remains of several of the original, ancient mounds. It is easy walking. Below is my personal video showing you the area, and explaining some of what happened here in ancient times.
