Natchez MS Homes & Real Estate at Paul Green & Associates Realtors: As the oldest town on the MS River, Natchez history runs as deep and wide as the MS River itself. Natchez was founded on an iconic bluff overlooking the MS River in 1716 as Fort Rosalie and renamed Natchez in 1730. In 1763, Natchez came under British rule. British rule was later followed by Spanish Colonial rule. Natchez became part of the United States after the British ceded the area to the United States of America after the Revolutionary war with Spain subsequently relinquishing all Spanish claims to the United States as well.
Today, Natchez is a bustling town that is an attractive area to live and work. Natchez celebrates cultural diversity among its residents and visitors as much as Natchez celebrates its unmatched diversity of architectural styles and influences.
There are many options for home ownership in Natchez. Historic Downtown Natchez boasts many diverse established neighborhoods inside the City Limits as well as subdivisions in the county such as Beau Pre Country Club and the newly developed Azalea Gardens on Hwy 61 South. Large and small acreage tracts with abundant wildlife offer more secluded living opportunities throughout the countryside surrounding Natchez.
Recreational opportunities abound with many boating, fishing, hunting and golf choices to take advantage of.
Natchez is fortunate to have St Catherine Wildlife Reserve just minutes to the south of the City limits for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.
In addition to the Natchez Trace Parkway, the National Park Service operates several individual properties inside the Natchez City limits that are available to the public on a regular basis.
Melanie Downer, sales agent with Paul Green and Associates, recalls: “After living in the northeastern Unites States for many years, I longed to move back down South, near my family in Mississippi and Louisiana. Natchez was the perfect solution. Located right on Hwy 61, it was easy to go see friends and family in both states. Natchez is also not far from airports and a nice drive to my beloved Tiger Stadium.
The Natchez community welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. My children experienced a wholesome upbringing of walking to school, church, downtown shops, the swimming pool or for ice cream. We fell in love with the historical beauty of Natchez and became active in projects involved with preservation and protection of historic properties. We have made lifelong friends and are proud to call Natchez home. I highly recommend living in Natchez. It has a peaceful way about it that I think you will also enjoy.”
Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime in Natchez.
