Context/Comments
Built for William Thompason Martin (1823-1910), who later become a Confederate general, and his wife Margaret Dunlop Coner Martin, on land that had originally been part of the "Linden" tract. Originally designed as a cottage residence in the style of A.J. Downing and still essentially in its original setting, Monteigne is significane as the former home of one of five Mississippians who achieved the rank of Major-General in the Confederate Army.

This house originally had Italianate galleries, but they were removed when it was remodeled into its present Neoclassical style in 1927 by the New Orleans architectural firm of Weiss, Dreyfus, and Seiferth. Included in The Great Houses of Natchez (pp. 79-80).
