King's Tavern Restaurant - Natchez, Mississippi

King's Tavern, circa 1789, is one of the oldest buildings in the Natchez area. In 2013, The Charboneau family bought the building and created a hand-crafted, wood fire oven restaurant that serves small batch liquors, unique cocktails, and tavern-made flatbreads.

In 1789, Richard King opened a tavern in the building. Located near the beginning of the old Natchez Trace the tavern was a sanctuary to many a weary traveler. The building is also thought to be haunted by the ghost of Mr. King's mistress, Madeline. Her remains were found in the brick fireplace with a Spanish dagger in her chest.
