Buzzard Roost Spring
Natchez Trace

Buzzard Roost Spring is located on the Natchez Trace Parkway at milepost 320.3.

Buzzard Roost Spring was a water source for the Colbert house which also served as an inn and stand for travelers on the Old Natchez Trace.


Originally called Buzzard Sleep, the name was changed to Buzzard Roost in 1801 by Levi Colbert, a renowned Chickasaw chief. The spring was a water source for the Colbert house which also served as an inn and stand for travelers on the Old Natchez Trace. Travelers who stopped here remarked that its a good place for they were well received, well fed and kindly treated. (Levi was a brother to George Colbert, they both ran the Colbert Ferry and their stands were about 2 hours apart by horseback.)
