Concord Quarters MHT Award

From: Mississippi Heritage Trust

The dedication of the Coseys in Natchez to the success of Concord Quarters earned them a Heritage Award of Merit for Restoration in 2020. Congratulations Concord Quarters! Built as the home of Spanish Governor Manuel Gayoso de Lemos in 1794, Concord was the first great mansion house of Natchez. The focal point of a 1,000-acre plantation, Concord stood about a mile and a half north of downtown Natchez until it burned in 1901.

Today, all that remains of Concord is a colonnaded dependency constructed in 1820, which provided living quarters and a kitchen for enslaved house servants. Remodeled and enlarged to function as a single-family residence in the early twentieth century, the house was badly deteriorated when purchased and restored by Deborah and Gregory Cosey to become a bed and breakfast. The house is the only free-standing slave dwelling in Mississippi listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
