Natchez has a large collection of Antebellum homes. One of them is Twin Oaks, a Greek Revival style home built in 1832 that is situated on three acres of southern gardens. It is owned by noted Chef Regina Charboneau, who has turned the building into a bed and breakfast and small cooking school. Regina ensures that Southern hospitality remains on display in her home as she welcomes and entertains guests. She hosts regular afternoon teas and dinners at the house, and has made it a stop on everyone’s Christmas itineraries with beautiful decorations and elaborate, traditional teas. Twin Oaks was also the home to other notable residents, including of Mother Cornelia Connelly, the founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, and Lewis Evans, a sheriff in the Mississippi Territory, and Federal troops stayed in the house during the Civil War.
