Homes to be demolished as park development begins

NATCHEZ — Derelict houses along the Natchez bluff could soon be coming down as the National Park Service gears up for work to develop a park at the site of Fort Rosalie.

Natchez National Historical Park superintendent Kathleen Jenkins said the park service expects soon to have clearance to remove deteriorating housing from the fort site.

The Natchez Democrat reports while demolition of blighted housing is planned, the park service is also completing the historic structure reports for two buildings that will be preserved.
