The Cliffs Plantation is a Southern plantation with a historic mansion located in Natchez, Mississippi, USA.

The land of the Mount Hope Plantation was acquired by Thomas and Alexander Henderson, two planters of Scottish descent, in 1828.[3] When Thomas Henderson died in 1857, it was inherited by his son John W. Henderson, an 1853 graduate of Oakland College.[3]

Construction of the one-and-a-half story house began in 1856, and it was completed in 1858.[3] It was built for John W. Henderson and his wife, Ellen Newman.[3] In 1868, it was acquired by John Coulson, the former owner of Belvidere, another historic mansion purchased by Henderson shortly after.[3] It was later sold to the Brown family, until it was purchased by Mr Meade Hufford in 1979.[3]
