Comfortable Accommodations, Unique Attractions - Your Support Matters
The old Natchez Trace was full of life, a melting pot of humanity. Settlers and Indians, merchants and robbers, the fantastically rich and the tragically poor all came together on this rutted roadway between Natchez and Nashville, two of the most important towns in the South.
Today at French Camp, you'll find comfortable lodging and dining. Visit the historic buildings and special attractions, like our pottery studio, gift shop, cafe, and museum. There’s so much to explore. Explore our website and find information on all that we offer. Set your watch back – to the 1800s – and stay awhile.
French Camp Historic Village is a support ministry of French Camp Academy, and, every time you have a meal in our cafe, buy items in our gift shop, or stay in our Bed & Breakfast, you are contributing to the education and support of children at French Camp. Thank you for all you do.
