• Ruins of Windsor - Port Gibson, Mississippi

      Roadtrip Attraction
      23 Corinthian columns are all that remain of what was one of the largest antebellum homes ever built. It was built by Smith Coffee Daniell, II, a wealthy planter. It survived the Civil War, probably because it was a Union hospital, only to burn to the ground in 1890 from a cigarette that was dropped by a party guest. Scenes from the movie Raintree County with Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Cliff were filmed here.

      If you go:
      As you drive south on Hwy 552 from Port Gibson, watch for a small sign. Services are available in Port Gibson. Not suitable for RVs.
