Stanton Hall, also known as Belfast, is an Antebellum Classical Revival mansion in Natchez, Mississippi built during 1851–57 for Frederick Stanton, a cotton broker. It occupies a full block on High Street between Pearl and Commerce Streets in Natchez and is operated as a historic house museum by the Pilgrimage Garden Club.

The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974[3][4] and a Mississippi Landmark in 1995.[1]

The mansion is also available for rental for weddings and other special events.
