Natchez National Historical Park and COVID-19

From: Natchez Democrat

Beginning July 8, 2020, Natchez National Historical Park will reopen access to the grounds at the 80-acre Melrose estate, No. 1 Melrose Montebello Parkway.

The grounds of this National Historic Landmark will be open to the public seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The reopening follows guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local public health authorities to increase recreational access and services at Natchez National Historical Park.

The National Park Service is working service-wide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis.

The park has designed a self-guided tour of the Melrose estate grounds that is an easy .7-mile walk and follows gravel roads or paved paths for almost the entire route.
