Come to Party for Presevation

Published 12:02 am Monday, April 29, 2013

The Ladies of the Natchez Garden Club and the Preservation Society of Ellicott Hill would like to invite each of you to join us for the annual Party for Preservation. This year’s event will take place at none other than Magnolia Hall which is on the corners of Washington and Pearl streets from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday.

This year the theme for the Party for Preservation is “Home is Where the Heart Is,” and our very own Maggie Brown will provide entertainment for the evening. With such soothing music, fabulous cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvre, this is sure to be the perfect event to kick off the summer.

Over the past several years, the ladies of the Natchez Garden Club and the Preservation Society have worked tirelessly to transform and preserve all of Natchez’s finest homes and gardens into something that many generations to come can learn about, tour, and enjoy. With this year’s Party for Preservation, we are hoping to continue these efforts to give both Magnolia Hall and The House on Ellicott Hill face lifts and updates that will help us keep them as vital parts of our city’s tourism industry.

Some of the work that still needs to be done to Magnolia Hall will be broken down into phases to make sure that each change is made into a priority. With a brand new roof and chimneys, Magnolia Hall is well on its way to becoming new again. These changes assure its soundness, due in large part to the entire community’s support — a community that proves time and time again that it values preserving the buildings that help tell the history of our city.

For tickets and more information on this fundraising event, please call the Natchez Garden Club’s office at 60-443-9065, contact us by e-mail at, check out our website,, or find us on Facebook and Twitter. Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased ahead of time or at the event itself.

As always, we look forward to seeing you there and having you join our efforts for preservation!
