Linden is a historic mansion in Natchez, Mississippi.
It is located at 1 Linden Place in Natchez, Adams County, Mississippi.
In 1815, it was rebuilt for Thomas Buck Reed (1787–1829), who served as the United States Senator from Mississippi from January 28, 1826 to March 4, 1827, and again from March 4, 1829 to November 26, 1829; he was also the son-in-law of plantation owner Isaac Ross (1760–1838). The mansion was known as Reedland.
Itt was then purchased by Dr John Ker (1789–1850), another plantation owner who knew Isaac Ross through the Mississippi Colonization Society. Ker expanded the mansion by adding the wings and a ninety-eight-foot gallery.
The house has two stories, with an apartment on each wing. The front porch has a wide gallery with white columns. Inside, there is a painting by John James Audubon (1785–1851), and a portrait of Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind (1820–1887).
