Natchez Trails

Myrtle Terrace (behind you) was the home of steamboat captain Thomas P. Leathers, who commanded the steamboat Natchez in a race with the Robert E. Lee in 1870. An internationally known riverboat pilot, Leathers worked for more than fifty years and piloted seven boats with the Natchez name. He escaped death by fire on a burning boat and survived other river disasters, only to die after being struck by a bicyclist in New Orleans. Leathers and his family are buried in the Natchez City Cemetery.
The Dr. Dubs Townhouse was built in 1852 for city alderman and dentist Dr. Charles H. Dubs. Dr. Dubs patented a "compound union screw forceps" for extraction of hollow tooth roots, "without injury to the jaw." He built a house that was similar to the brick townhouses in his native Philadelphia. The front wall shows some of the finest brickwork. As you walk beside the house, notice the construction date etched in a brick near the rear corner. The small building to the rear was a kitchen with slave quarters above.
Irish immigrant Frederick Stanton, a wealthy slave-holding planter and cotton merchant, built this new town house in 1857 and named it "Belfast." In the 1890s, the house became home to Stanton College for Young ladies. In the early 1900s,



it again became a private home and was renamed Stanton Hall. In 1938, the Pilgrimage Garden Club bought the house, and it has served for years as the hub of social activity for garden club members. Today the club opens the house to visitors as a house museum and operates a restaurant on the grounds.
