"All Victorian and late Empire furnishings that came with the estate at purchase, as well as the contents of all bed and breakfast equipment and furniture, will be sold to make way for the rebirth of The Briars," said Dwight Stevens, the owner of Stevens Auction Company, based in Aberdeen. "This Natchez icon will have period furnishings from its beginning in 1818."
Mr. Stevens added, "We will also have items from the new owner Chip Newman's late father's estate. The elder late Mr. Newman was a well-known and respected Natchez businessman and civic leader." Open house previews will be held at The Briars on Friday, October 6th, from 10 am-6 pm Central time.
