Glenfield - originally called Glencannon, is one of the most important houses architecturally in Natchez for its English Gothic style. Not only does Glenfield reflect a high quality of architecture, its original interior decorative scheme is significant as well. The house has retained its original appearance except for the remodeled English Gothic Revival porch with crenelated cornice.
A vertical seam in the front brick wall, which is reflected on the interior in the shift from cypress to pine flooring, reflects the addition built around 1840 from the original existing house of Spanish architecture built around 1787. Thomas Rose is believe to be the architect that designed the English Gothic manner for the William Cannon family. It was in April 1880 that Osborne King Field, a wealthy brick mason, purchased the home from the Cannons, and Glenfield has stayed in the Field family for now 8 generations.
One of Natchez Plantations, Glenfield was one of the few homes that witnessed the only Civil War skirmishes. We invite you to come experience a step back in time, at Glenfield Plantation. Where history of the Old South and family antique heirlooms are well preserved in their finest form.
