Context/Comments
A symmetrical two-storied, stuccoed rural Italianate villa with no tower. The last of three extant dwellings constructed for members of the prominent Bisland family of the Pine Ridge community about seven miles north of Natchez. Important architecturally as the best example of the Italianate style in the vicinity of Natchez. It also ranks among the most lavishly trimmed houses of the area. Probably the last plantation mansion to be completed before the Civil War, Edgewood was designed by the architectural firm of Howard & Diettel of New Orleans.
