Additional Details:
A picturesque cottage-villa, set in midst of wild landscape. One section is Spanish (1812), having porch enclosed by hand-hewn blinds; the other section, English Gothic, added in 1825. Here, under Capt. Wirt Adams, Confederate cavalry held back northern troops from invading Natchez. Bullet holes in doors and walls and uniform buttons and medals found on lawns of the house, bear evidence of the battle around "Glenfield," the home of Mrs. Lee B. Field.
