Originally known as Belvidere, Airlie is one of Natchez’ earliest constructed homes, built around 1793. Airlie is perched on a choice, secluded site in the northern part of town. A gallery fronts the home and is supported by chamfered posts which are uncommon for plantation homes, yet provide ample support for the length of the house front. The name was changed to Airlie by the Aylette Buckner family, who purchased the home in 1832. The Buckner's did extensive remodeling to the interior in the Greek revival style, and the home remained in the Buckner family until the last descendant passed away in the late 1980’s. Airlie is only open to the public during pilgrimage in either Spring or Fall, and although you can drive by the house, viewing is difficult because of the wooded surroundings. You can park on Myrtle Ave. which intersects with Elm St., and Airlie’s circular drive is just beyond the intersection.
As a national historic landmark, Auburn has quite a story to tell. It was the first major building in Natchez to follow an actual architectural plan. In the years leading to the Civil War several Natchez homes emulated the style of Auburn's facade. The home's spiral staircase stands entirely unsupported, a feat unmatched even in modern buildings. These points introduce you to the dramatic story of Auburn itself.
