Natchez and Natchez Under the Hill, Mississippi

Natchez Under the Hill was the original town of Natchez, and a famously rowdy place indeed. This is where the riverboat captains and crews sold their cargoes from upstream then spent freely in celebration. In addition to saloons and brothels, Under the Hill was home to notorious highwaymen, river pirates, and other criminals.

Floods and fires have reduced the narrow old town to a few buildings, and of course it has nothing of the original ambiance.

The Mississippi River is surprisingly hard to get a good look at - having only a few bridges and being mostly fringed by swamps. But Natchez is high on bluffs above the river and offers a series of good viewpoints.
