At one time the town Natchez was home to over half the millionaires in the US and a number of the antebellum (pre civil war) mansions still stand, some of which can be toured.
The park is about 30 minutes from Natchez which has a sad and interesting history. I say sad because, like many other places in the south there was slavery there before it was abolished. In part that's also why it is interesting, but there's more than that.
