The home of John T. McMurran, Melrose is an excellent example of an antebellum Greek Revival estate. McMurran was a well-known Natchez lawyer and planter from the 1830s to 1865, who controlled cotton plantations in Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. Melrose's story is of the effect of the cotton-based economy on the political and social life of the South and of the Civil War on that economy.
