Natchez-Under-The-Hill


Natchez-Under-the-Hill, Natchez, MS; once a rough-and-tumble place for riverboat men.  It was the naughtiest riverboat  landing on the Mississippi River.  Filled with bars, bawdy houses, and gambling "establishments", it was also the last place the let loose before setting off overland on the Natchez Trace.  Hundreds of steamboats plying the river docked here from the early 1800s thru World War II.  Today, it's still a riverboat dock for the Delta Queen and there are still a few bars "under the hill."
