Windsor Ruins, It has been aptly called the Parthenon of the Old South. Built on the eve of the American Civil War by planter Smith Coffee Daniell, II, the stately Greek Revival mansion survived the war only to be destroyed by an accidental fire in 1890. All that now stands on the site just north of Port Gibson are twenty-three fluted columns crowned with elegant iron Corinthian capitals. The stark beauty of the once grand house echoes the faded glory of the Old South.  (First 4 Photos of the ruins submitted by Bill White: photo 1, photo 2, photo 3, photo 4, photo 5 ,photo 6, drawing), Located near Port Gibson & Alcorn University.
