Magnolia Bluffs Casino

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

Magnolia Bluffs Casino is a casino in Natchez, Mississippi. It has 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2) of gaming space, with 580 slot machines and 10 table games.

History

The casino site was the location of a sawmill, Learned’s Mill, which opened in 1828 and operated until 1962.

The project’s original developer, the Lane Company, received preliminary approval from the Mississippi Gaming Commission in early 2008. Plans stalled due to a failure to find financing amid the global financial crisis. The building plan was scaled back from two floors to one in 2009. Kentucky-based Premier Gaming stepped in to lead the project, and began construction in late 2011. The casino opened on December 18, 2012.

Architect Edward Vance said the casino’s weathered wood exterior was originally inspired by historic lumber mills, and later modifications were modeled on photographs of carriage houses.

In August 2015, Isle of Capri Casinos announced that its Natchez casino would close, and that Magnolia Bluffs would purchase the property’s hotel and other non-gaming assets for $11.5 million.
