Is Natchez a small town? Kind of. It’s home to about 13,000 people, which may knock it out of the small-town category, but that number pales in comparison to some of Mississippi’s larger cities like Jackson (150,000), Gulfport (73,000), and Southaven (55,000). There are many reasons to visit this charming city nestled along the Mississippi River, including Longwood, the largest octagonal house in the United States.
