Fort Rosalie, founded on August 3, 1716, was created as a French colonial bulkhead that has lead to the oldest permanent settlement on the lower Mississippi River–the City of Natchez, Mississippi. Natchez National Historical Park opened the Fort Rosalie archaeological site to the public for the first time on August 3, 2016–the 300th anniversary of its completion by French oversight and Natchez Indian labor. Today, there is a green space maintained by the National Park Service with picnic tables. The site is open from sunrise to sunset.
