Longwood was designed in 1859 by Philadelphia architect Samuel Sloan for cotton planter Dr. Haller Nutt and and his wife Julia. In 1860, construction began but was halted in 1861 when the Civil War started. The craftsmen dropped their tools and their tools were kept in the same positions the workers left them until only recently. The workers fled home to Philadelphia, PA. 

This massive Moorish Revival home is the largest octagonal house in the U.S. The original plan called for 32 rooms, 26 fireplaces, 115 doors, and 96 columns. Only 9 of the 32 rooms were ever finished and those are all on the lower level/basement of the home. That’s where the family lived for the rest of their lives.

In 1968, the Nutt family sold the house to the Pilgrimage Garden Club of Natchez. In 1969, Longwood was named as a National Historic Landmark and was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
