Context/Comments
Ravenna is one of the most architecturally significant early Greek Revival mansions in Natchez. This significance is based upon its well-documented construction, its high degree of architectural finish, and the uniqueness of its architectural form in Natchez. Ravenna was constructed in 1835-36 as the residence of William Harris, a commission merchant, real estate developer, planter, and Natchez alderman.
