The State’s Capitol, but also the Mississippi River Basin Model, a small-scale model of the river built by German and Italian prisoners of war. A fire destroyed the beautiful Windsor Plantation, leaving only 23 columns which have been featured in several films, most notably “Raintree County” starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. The little white house where Elvis Presley was born and spent most of his youth stands in Tupelo. Natchez takes pride in preserving some 500 stunning historic homes which have survived the War of Secession.
