After the Natchez Indians controlled this region, the history of Natchez begins in 1716, when the French established a settlement and built a fort they named Fort Rosalie. In 1798 Natchez came under American control.

With the rich soil of this region Natchez quickly became a major producer of cotton and enormous fortunes were made through the use of slave labor. Vast plantations were carved from the wilderness and ocean-going vessels would sail up the Mississippi to deliver goods and pick up cotton for European markets.
