1. Road to Fort Rosalie Marker
In the early 1700s, a road began here and connected the Grand Village with the French colonial settlement on the Mississippi River bluff near what is now downtown Natchez.

In 1723, French mapmaker Ignace Broutin produced a remarkably detailed map of the Natchez area. Broutin's map shows numerous trails, including the trail from the Grand Village to Fort Rosalie. Some of the present-day Natchez streets follow these ancient foot paths.

Archaeologists examine the buried remains of a Natchez Indian house discovered during a drainage pipe excavation in 1983. The house once stood in this vicinity, beside the road to Fort Rosalie.
