Natchez history:

Natchez is the oldest civilized settlement on the Mississippi River beating out New Orleans by just two years. The first inhabitants were prehistoric Indians and then the Natchez Indians. The French came in 1716, the British in 1763, the Spanish in 1779 and the Americans in 1798. This same year it became the first capital of the Mississippi Territory. In 1817, it became the first capital of Mississippi State. Natchez grew early on with the help of "King Cotton." The steamboats moved tons of cotton grown in Mississippi and Louisiana and many settlers grew very rich. Many of the large mansions in Natchez were built during the boom years of the early 19th century.

Natchez once had 500 millionaires, more than any other city except New York City. Natchez now has more than 500 buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places.
