Context/Comments
An elegant and well preserved five-bay Federal Style galleried cottage. Since its construction c.1822, Fair Oaks has achieved local prominence as the residence of several important families of the fashionable Second Creek neighborhood six miles south of Natchez. In addition, the strucutre is architecturally significant as an interesting vernacular form possessed of sophisticated, well-calculated and skillfully joined interior woodwork. Its wainscotted gallery and dining room punkah are important architectural features peculiar to the Natchez region.
