Additional Details:
Connelly's Tavern, Ellicotts Hill. Erected by Spanish citizens in 1795. Sold later to Patrick Connelly who ran an inn. It was here that Commissioner Ellicott encamped in 1797 when he came to ascertain the boundary between the U. S. and Spanish possession. On this hill he raised Old Glory in defiance of Spanish orders. One year later the Spaniards evacuated Natchez. The building has been restored by Natchez Garden Club, and is used as Club Headquarters
