Let's Have a Ball while We Save the Hall!


Who is the Pilgrimage Historical Association – PHA?

In 1970, a small group of concerned and farsighted ladies founded a nonprofit historical association, qualified as a tax-deductible 501(c)3, toward “preserving the historical antebellum buildings in Natchez and Adams County, Mississippi.”

What does PHA do?

The PHA wants to increase its endowment for the ongoing preservation and restoration of PGC’s two premier National Historic Landmarks:  Stanton Hall and Longwood. There are significant projects  at both houses including  the repair and restoration of the dome, the dependency, and the kitchen at Longwood, and analysis and repair of structural issues impacting the exterior  dentils at Stanton Hall. 

When and Where?

The party will be on March 21, 2015 from 9:30 pm until 1:00 am at Stanton Hall in Natchez, Mississippi.

How do I get a ticket?

Tickets are $100 per person for the Ball and $125 per person for the Ball and with reserved seating at the Tableaux.  Tickets are available through Natchez Pilgrimage Tours at or call 1-800-647-6742 or 601-446-6631.  Patron tickets are also available.  Please contact for more information on patron giving.

Why a Ball?

Because Natchez loves a party!  The Save the Hall Ball hopes to gather donors and old friends at a black-tie party with great food, open bar and a dance band like the   traditional Natchez pilgrimage balls.  We also want to give tourists and other interested people insider’s  access to this special event.  A great party on the grounds of Stanton Hall is a wonderful way to remind us of the beauty and importance of these historic buildings.

They started it.  Now it’s our turn.
