Windsor Ruins are in Claiborne County, Mississippi, United States, about 10 miles (16 km) southwest of Port Gibson near Alcorn State University. The ruins consist of 23 standing Corinthian columns of the largest antebellum Greek Revival mansion ever built in the state. The mansion stood from 1861 to 1890, when it was destroyed by fire. The 2.1-acre (0.85 ha) site with the columns was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and was designated a Mississippi Landmark in 1985.

  • Nice to drive through a lush green and wooded Mississippi road to these ruins. It was sad to read the marker and the bad luck that befell this family. Alcorn State university and the Natchez Parkway.....  more

  • Great little side trip on visit to Natchez. A little out of the way from the Natchez Trace but worth the side trip to view this historic site.

  • Wow. Definitely got a creepy woods vibe when visiting here. Crazy to imagine how the mansion used to be complete and full of life. No ghosts but when I visited someone had place 3 of the Little Bur truck series books in front (????) So odd.
  • Read about it before stopping by. You will appreciate it more when you are there. Beautiful!
